English term or phrase: sword or shield
Is there a old norse word for either of these, similar to the spelling "skoldjner"
Brian Smith
Icelandic translation:skjöldur
Explanation:
Without looking up the proper references (which I don't have) I cannot be sure, but if this word exists like you have spelt it I am fairly sure this is the old version of "skjöldur" or shield.

www.hi.is is the URL for the Icelandic University. You might try and email someone there.

I hope this helps a little.
