Shields to defend pre-Romanesque architecture in Asturias

After you've built these unique buildings, you'll need to defend and protect them so they’ll still be standing for another 1,000 years. To protect them well, you'll need these shields (which come with a handle). Print them out, glue them on cardboard and you've got yourself a shield to protect the pre-Romanesque monuments of Asturias.
