With an area of nearly 3000 square-kilometers, Gotland is the second largest island in the Baltic Sea. The location at the trading routes between Scandinavia at the one hand and Russia and Byzantium at the other hand caused an increasing wealth for the inhabitants, proofed by over 700 treasure finds. On economic aspects, Gotland was really not isolated, but the inhabitants developed their own dress accessoires with major differences to the other viking cultures in Scandinavia.
South of the old city of Visby, archeologists discovered the burial field "Kopparsvik" with about 400 graves of the 9th and 10th century.

The strap end is modelled after a find from this burial field  GF C 12675, Grave no. 11, by Markus Neidhardt and Thoke Fischer. Length of the strap end 80mm, width 22mm, will be delivered with rivets ready for assembling.
