Description and uses

A scutum is one of the heaviest shields in the game. It requires 1500 grams of wood and a bronze or iron carving knife. This shield takes 8 days to make and is a bit better then a tortoiseshell shield. If you have a limited supply of iron but want great protection and don't mind the weight, the scutum is for you. Can be used to make a steel scutum.

Real-life context

"Scutum (pronounced /ˈskuːtəm/, pl. scuta) is the Latin word for "shield", although it has in modern times come to be specifically associated with the rectangular, semi-cylindrical body shield carried by Roman legion." - [1]
