Is it possible to wear to many belts? If shoes are for girls then belts are for viking men.

Thanx =) My wife says that I must learn to control my belt fetish. Maybe I should make a few new for my daughter?

Yeah... it's actually easy to find out if there can be too many belts. Check burial sites and see how many buckles there are in each. There shouldn't be too many, since leather was harder to get in Scandinavia than in for example Rus or Poland.
With this amount of gear I'd reckon you're a damn wealthy Rus jarl

In one way you are right, in another you are wrong.

You are right to assume that the amount of belts seldom were more than two. You are wrong in assuming leather was hard to get. Leather cover animals and there were animals in Scandinavia to =). The idea that leather was a luxury goods is an all modern idea. Of course I'm wearing to many belts in this pic =). Irony does not translate well in writing.

Thank you for your comment.

Yeah, I understand that. They had to have a lot of cloth and pelts/hides to keep the cold out of their homes. It makes perfect sense.
I've not checked it properly. I thought you might direct me on the right track or know some findings that could reveal more about this issue.
In Polish re-enactment there is the, I don't know a rule? Viking women usually don't have a belt, they use a tablet weaved ribbon instead. They can only have a one small belt if their husband is really wealthy. This doesn't apply to slav women though.
I genuinely wonder what's the deal with that?
