AHH is the laymen definition of a PAVISES is that a BARN DOOR? It does fit in the period time 15th century. We did and still do have a few fighter that could carry one in to battle. Maby a unarmed fighter that only carries the shield. A new meaning to Shield Wall.
It seams the list moderator will not let me post images about the use of a PAVISES so you will have to go look at them yourself. If you cannot see them or get the wrong image blame the moderator.
