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.
