History[]

The Egyptians favored a round-topped, leather-covered wooden shield. Leather over a wooden frame offered a cheap, light and easy-to-work covering that was, in many cases, more resilient than heavy and expensive metal coverings. A lighter shield meant that troops carrying them could move more quickly and wield them more effectively.
