This hand-forged shield is based on a 10th century original found in grave 544 in Birka. The Viking shield of which this shield boss was a part, was decorated with brass fittings. Shield bosses like these were used all over the Viking world.
In contrast to most models, these shield bosses were higher, which provided more space to the hand to hold the shield. Similar originals have been found in the Viking cities of Jorvik and Dublin. Some are part of the collection of the National Museum in Oslo. This shield boss is delivered including rivets. It can therefore be put directly on the shield.
