Functional Scottish Targe AH-3995

Functional Scottish Targe

Product Description

Our Functional Scottish Targe is made with wood, covered in leather, and decorated with brass studs.  The term targe refers to various types of shields used by infantry troops from the 13th to 16th centuries. The design was first developed in Spain. From the early 17th century, until the Battle of Culloden in 1746, the Scottish Highlander's main means of defence in battle was his targe. Although some targe designs appear to have been more popular than others, there is very little to indicate that there ever were "clan" designs.
