This belt is based on 15th century originals excavated in London. Nowadays it is part of the collection of the Museum of London. Similar items have been excavated all over Europe. The buckle and belt fittings in this belt are based on an original made of pewter and not of pewtered bronze or iron. From the 15th century onwards belts with pewter fittings and buckles increased in popularity. Pewter is cheap, so lower classes in society could also afford belts with pewter fittings. The belt is made of brown cowhide. The belt tongue is made of pewtered brass, which is a stronger material than pure pewter.
