Historical Background

During the medieval period, the Heater Shield was a classic shield made of either wood or (usually) metal that was triangular in shape and used by cavalry. This shield, which was shorter than the Kite Shield, was the most typical to bear markings of heraldry. By the end of the thirteenth century, a cut in the top right-hand corner of the shield was used to rectify difficulties with holding a lance in proper position.
