Bronze sheild, 1200-700 BC British Museum. Yetholm-type shields were used in 1200-800 BC (Bronze Age). The known shields come from Britain and Ireland, excepting one from Denmark. Their modern name comes from Yetholm in southern Scotland where a peat bog yielded three examples of the approximately 20 known. The shields vary significantly in size, but are otherwise similar.
