"He bade them their round shields rightly to hold"

The 2025 Society of Ancients Battle Day will feature the clash of Viking and English shieldwalls at Maldon (AD 991). In preparation for this I have updated my Shieldwall rules to refight the battle.

We will be running a test game next month. The rules incorporate some of the ideas and mechanisms that have worked so well with 'Alala! Still work in progress, Shieldwall is available as a free download from the Rules Section of my website. No doubt they will evolve further over the coming months so I have added the date to the pages for version control.
