Ancient Greek Shields were made out of either willow or limewood and covered with a very fine layer of bronze. The shield can be decorated with either an individual or tribal crest. City states often had their own shield pattern. The arm grip at the back of the shield enabled phalanx (standing in close formation) fighting.
