Shield and buckler

Posted by Sue Cutter on July 16, 2001

Hi, All --

I'm new here and have asked the search function for this phrase, to no avail. Can you help?

A shield...no problem; a buckler? What's that when it's at home and not doing anything else? What function would it perform in what I assume is armament?

Thanks.

Sue
