Roman Scutum - More than a shield
Most cultures in ancient times only knew the shield as body protection. It served to effectively defend a punch or a direct hit. They were well protected against any blows from enemies. In close combat the enemy could be obstructed by denying him sight. The Roman legions were particularly fond of this method. The Roman Scutum was made by the Romans gladly from several times glued wood with canvas or leather cover and hand-painted.
Their creativity is free rein
The bookmark is made of real papyrus and a Roman scutum is printed on it. However, since only the outlines are printed, you and your students have the opportunity to colour in the bookmark and design it according to your own ideas. The Romans themselves have attached individual symbols of the legions to the signs. These promoted friendships among each other and marked a unit in the fight against the opponents. Also a sticking with handicraft articles is not impossible. Your creativity is free run and it is up to you how your bookmark looks finished.

Use of the Roman scutum
The Roman scutum was also used as equipment for gladiators. From the very beginning, gladiators were guided by the professional equipment of the Romans. The Roman scutum was used in the arena in single combat. The gladiators had to practice long and hard to master the techniques of the Roman army.
