The Scutum was the traditional "tower shield" carried by Roman infantry soldiers, where it played a primary role in their historically famous defensive formations.


The metal "boss" at the center of the scutum allowed it to be used to bash foes. Such a heavy blow could send them staggering or even knock them down.
