Viking Age belt based on the find in the Gokstad ship burial in Norway (9th Century).
Handmade from durable oxhide, the belt comes with the historically accurate bronze buckle, keeper and a strap end. It is quite wide and prominent considering most other Viking Age belts, and sturdy enough to keep even heavier items hanging from it nicely.
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.
