Sutton Hoo- Anglo-Saxon Belt
The archaeological site of Sutton Hoo is located in England ,East Anglia. The site has numerous burial mounds and the most popular is the ship-burial from which remarkably well-preserved, precious artefact's dating back to the 7th century were excavated which included the famous Sutton Hoo helm and the gold buckle.
The ruling class of the Anglo-Saxons and other Germanic People, wore elaborate decorated belts showing outward symbols of status and prestige, and were indispensable garment accessories. 
This belt is based on the historical Sutton Hoo find. The intricately designed brass buckle is an accurately detailed reproduction of the ship grave's original golden buckle, which is on display at the British Museum in London. The buckle composes of three parts - a long, somewhat ovoid plate, a tongue with circular plate and a hoop (or frame). The tongue-plate and the hoop are both hinged independently. All components of the belt buckle are highly decorated: The long plate is entirely covered with densely interwoven animals or animal-like creatures - from coiling snakes to interlaced four-legged beasts to stylised bird heads - and is attached to the belt with three hemispherical ornament rivets. The 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 is approx. 4 cm wide, 3 mm thick strap and is made from quality cowhide. It has 15 square holes to ensure a perfect fit. 
The belt is also suitable for every day wear.
