Buckler (French bouclier 'shield', from Old French “bocle”, boucle 'boss') is a small shield with diameter from 15 to 45 cm (6 to 18 inches).

Fist shields of this type are known from Germanic and Celtic tribes. There are Byzantine frescoes of the 8th - 7th centuries, which show the foot soldiers with small fists shields. This type of medieval shields was very popular in the 12th - 16th centuries, until it was replaced with dague. The decline of bucklers was also caused by growing popularity of firearms.

You may see fist shield buckler on the numerous images in medieval manuscripts, fencing manuals, bas-reliefs and other historical sources. Such shields were usually made of steel or wood or it could be combined.
