Belt studs
Add to album

These bronze belt studs were found during excavations at the site of the Roman fort at Newstead in Roxburghshire. They were used on the leather strips forming the belt of the legionary soldier's uniform. They were worn between 80 and 180 AD.

The studs have mouldings at their edges. One is incomplete.

A Roman legionary soldier wore an 'apron' over his belt. It was made of strips of leather, often decorated with discs and with ornate terminals. Although the leather strips rarely survive, the fittings have been found.
