The Witham Shield is a decorative shield of La Tène style, dating from about the 4th century BC.

The Shield was discovered in the River Witham in the vicinity of Fiskerton in Lincolnshire in 1826.

Further excavation at the site have revealed posts interpreted as the foundation for a causeway, as well as artefacts including a sword, spears and part of a human skull with a sword fragment lodged within.

The shield now resides in the British Museum.
