coats of arms

Background and Historical Information

Coats of Arms date back to the early medieval period. In the Twelfth Century helmets and other armour were making it hard to tell friends from enemies.

To help stop this each knight and solider to paint something personal on their shield. These designs were very important in battle (Why?), but they also acted like team uniforms (can you tell me any famous designs that you know?) when knights met in tournaments.

Fashion

Who Had a Coat Of Arms?
  • Soon, coats of arms weren’t just for soldiers!
  • Some priests were known to have some designed.
  • Around 1230 towns and cities began to have their own coat of arms (Does Llangyfelach have a Coat of Arms- look on your uniform).
  • This was a time when not many people could read or write, so having a coat of arms made it easier to recognise others.
