U Is For Umbo...

Well. Today's corresponding letter is a bit tough, I'll say that much. But I do have something for you!

Umbo - Shield boss that covers the hand as it holds the grip.

Unfortunately, that's about it, but it does cover both the armor and weapon aspects I have been aiming for. Shields protected the fighters, and if you lost your sword, you certainly had a nice rounded piece of metal with which to bash your opponent.

Happy blogging, all! I'll see you tomorrow.

Shall we go shield-bashing today?
