Jewellery Belt made of Bronze and Iron

Due to its size and conspicuous decoration, this tin belt stands out from the otherwise modest-looking grave goods of the pre-Roman Iron Age. The deceased possessed an ostentatious but bulky piece of jewellery that was probably only worn on special occasions. Such belts imitated Celtic belt chains; because of their limited distribution; they are called Holstein belts.
