I do not remember, I took care of this case this afternoon, I realize to realize that the fydsmen kit-shields were not smaller than those of the huscarls (I was convinced otherwise).
After Ian Heath,this Shield type has arrived from c.1000 in England.
On the Bayeux tapestry, in the saxon army, there are only five convex round shields and these are only huscarls that hold them (What a horror !) and all the fyrdmen with shields have kit-shields (youpiiiiiiiiiii!)
