Just tobsay, that it wasvpointed out to me that the ‘heads on stakes’ shield pattern is more likely a lion’s head!

That slightly spoils the "ex-barbarian" image Roy :-)

There is also an article on the dragon and pearl shields ( anyone got it?) . These appear to be a Chinese symbol which transferred across to the West.
You are no doubt familiar with Luke Ueda  Sarsson’s articles on the web.
