I am looking for a word that would used to describe either many shields, or a structure that would be used to carry them in storage.
If I look at this medieval photo, there is a wooden structure on which shields and other weapons are stored. What is the name of this structure, or similar unit?
I am open to words from any era, since I'm going to repurpose it in the context of "conveying many shields". Search terms are helpful, since anything that I google for "sword storage" sends me to a Public Self Storage/Mini storage location.
For context, I'm using this to describe a computer software firewall I'm programming, and would like contextually relevant variable names. Examples include:
- Umbo = The smallest, most defensive aspect of the technology
- Shield = A grouping of Umbos (it's a misappropriation but good enough, I think a shield only had a maximum of one Umbo)
- ???? = A collection of shields that are manufactured or shipped or stored in a batch.
- ??? = A used, and therefore useless shield
