Viking Age belt based on the find from grave Bj 750 in Birka, Sweden. We have examined the actual finds in person at the Swedish History Museum.
Handmade from durable oxhide, the belt comes with historically accurate bronze fittings and a strap end. The thick belt is sturdy enough to keep even heavier items hanging from it nicely.
NOTE: Make sure to choose the correct length for your belt. You will not be able to shorten the belt without having to re-attach the strap end.
A belt belongs to the basics of a Viking outfit, together with a tunic, trousers and shoes. Richly decorated belts were not used by everyone. Anything that serving as a belt could be used to tie the tunic at the waist - such as a piece of rope, cloth or a simple leather strap with an iron ring. Belts ranged in width from 12 mm to 40 mm, which is evident in finds from the Viking Age.
