There’s a three-part series on the appearance of the Mediaeval Welsh by Paul Walsh in Slingshot issues 146-8, drawing on Welsh laws, poetry and so on.
The back issues are no longer available so unless you know someone who’s been a member of the Society of Ancients for many years, the only access possible would be to buy the “Golden Years of Slingshot, 1965-2015” DVD !!!
As for shields, in Part 3 he gives evidence for shields from Welsh epics; gold-chased, blue enamelled, yellow, white, but no designs are mentioned except that one is “gold-chased with a bar of azure enamel”, which could be a design but may mean the handle.
