“Advancing Legionary with Pilum (Testudo front rank)”

In Ancient Roman times, the ‘Testudo’ formation or ‘Tortoise Formation’ was a kind of shield wall formation commonly used to protect a large group of soldiers moving towards the enemy.  I n the ‘Testudo’, the soldiers would align their shields to the front and on top of their formation.  Some groups would also carry their shields on both flanks of the formation for additional protection.  This mode of defence offered some a degree of protection against rocks, arrows and other projectiles while the unit still advanced towards the enemy slowly but surely.
