Make your own Heraldic Shield.

Shield decorations can be found all over Scotland’s historic properties – pictured in stained glass windows and carved in stone.

The shape often forms part of a coat of arms, a design which represents a powerful person. These are called coats of arms because knights decorated the coats they wore on top of their armour with them, so you could tell who was who.

Use this free teaching resource from Historic Environment Scotland to cut out and design your own shield.
