A Gore is yet another form at dividing a Shield. Seen as a “pulled away” or “elapsed” Canton – The Gore was normally placed on either the Sinister or Dexter of a Shield. It was important to have The Gore a different tincture. It is first seen in wide use around the 16th Century. The Gore was sometimes referred to as a “Gusset”.
