Anglo-Saxon Great Belt | Medieval Belts

Anglo-Saxon Great Belt | Medieval Belts

Based on the storied Sutton Hoo find, this strong belt was designed. The massive, intricately crafted brass buckle is an exact replica of the original golden buckle from the boat tomb, which is on display for visitors to admire at the British Museum in London. It is made up of three parts: a tongue with a circular plate, a long, rather oval plate, and a hoop (or frame). Both the tongue-plate and the hoop have separate hinges. The entire belt buckle is lavishly decorated: The lengthy plate is fastened to the belt with three hemispherical decoration rivets and is totally covered in densely woven animals or animal-like creatures, ranging from coiling snakes to interlaced four-legged beasts to stylised bird heads. The meandering, snake-like motifs are repeated on the tongue-plate as well as on the two circular belt fittings, while the buckle frame is ornamented with fine interlace.

The belt's approx. 4 cm wide, 3 mm thick strap is made from quality cowhide and has 15 square holes for a perfect fit.

This beautiful belt is sure to become a talking point at every medieval market, LARP gathering or reenactment event. However, it is not only a perfect, classy addition to any early medieval garb, but also absolutely suitable for everyday use!
