The Saxons

Gold belt buckle

Belt fastener

The metal and decoration on Saxon's buckle reflected the wealth and status of their owner.


This magnificent buckle found in the ship burial was made of gold and weighs 412.7 grams.

Who do you think could have worn this belt clip?

A Saxon soldier, a Saxon king or a Saxon monk ?
