Shield

Hello!

I'm one of the people that train with the AHF in Bristol.

I very much enjoyed the melee at Fight Camp.
I especially enjoyed using a shield.
How can i make one of my own?
I saw some of the curved wooden ones.
Is there any historical method?
Or should i just try bending some marine ply to curvature?

Is there any sources for how they should be strapped?
I'm unsure where to find out.
