'Phenomenal' 2,300-year-old bark shield found in Leicestershire
The shield was discovered in 2015 by archaeologists from the University of Leicester Archaeological Service in a site close to the River Soar. Organic objects from the period very rarely survive, but the shield was preserved in waterlogged soil and may have been deposited in a water-filled pit, according to Matt Beamish, the lead archaeologist for the service.

Bark shields of the period were entirely unknown in the northern hemisphere, he told the Guardian, and the assumption was that the material may have been too flimsy for use in war. However experiments to remake the weapon in alder and willow showed the 3mm-thick shield would have been tough enough for battle but incredibly light.

It was likely that, contrary to assumptions, similar weapons were widespread, Beamish said. ...

That bark shield could've come from anywhere ‚Äď recent finds suggest that the ancient world had more trade than popular accounts admit. Chinese imports have been found at ancient Roman sites. And garnet inlay, found in very high-quality Anglo-Saxon gold items from Sutton Hoo (England), could've come from mines in S. Asia.

I imagine ancients would have a good laugh at what modern scholars say about them.

Well put, JAG. While a snoozer for some, this story reflects that human intelligence has not evolved but was created. Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal-Cain from Genesis 4:20-22 reflect these capabilities, although they did not use them for the Lord's glory, even earlier than Noah.

And the evolutionist claim that man is only getting smarter, since we are getting further from our ape ancestors. What the Bible says is completely opposite. People have had the same intelligence capabilities regardless of time in history. Just look at the Romans. They had aqueducts, central heating, arched openings (a very advanced form of design btw),and even cross bows. The amount of intelligence it took for Noah to built a completely waterproof ark, with facilities enough to provide for thousands of animals, is proof alone that people have been smart right from the beginning.

How much more a measly little bark shield...

https://tinyurl.com/y5evyjv4 (The Battersea shield (cover)) give you some idea of what this wooden shield would have look like. Of course it would not have been as ornate as the cover
