Medieval Sword & Shield is a fascinating interpretation of the earliest known fighting treatise in Europe, Royal Armouries RA I.33, also published by Chivalry Bookshelf as The Medieval Art of Swordsmanship (ISBN 1891448382).

In Medieval Sword & Shield, Stephen Hand and Paul Wagner decrypt the sword and buckler techniques presented in the color treatise, explaining the concepts that underly the system and providing photographic examples to explain their interpretation to the reader.

This book looks at a unique time in the Western Martial Arts, c. 1290, as the sword and buckler were used for civilian defense on the roads of Europe.

Clearly presented, this book promises to become a classic of Western Martial Arts, of interest to historical fencers, SCA combatants, martial artists, and students of medieval history.
