A copper alloy suspension loop for a sword belt found at Heath Wood, Ingelby
This suspension loop was found in Mound 1 at Heath Wood, Ingleby. it is a copper alloy suspension loop that was probably part of a sword belt. The loop is wide enough for a doubled strap to pass through, so it may have been used to suspend the scabbard from the belt. It has been suggested that this one was probably Anglo-Saxon in origin, because this style is not known from Scandinavia, but that did not stop a Viking acquiring it and being buried with it.
