For Spartans and other Greek warriors, the shield served as a vital weapon for attacking opposing armies. Greek shields were made of wood, sometimes with an outer coat of bronze on the rim and decoration. They weighed around 16 lbs. with a diameter of 2.1 in. and a thickness of 1-1.5 in. With their large size, the Greeks were able to create a mass formation using the shield to charge forward into the enemies army. Clearly, the Greeks were armed for success and you can be too with Armor Venue’s line of Greek shields. Offering a wide array of options, you’ll be sure to find the shield that’s right for you.
