Horizontal Belt Buckle Hooks in Eastern Europe 16—17th Centuries

This work is the first of a series of articles devoted to the horizontal belt buckle-hooks. These belt buckle-hooks were widely used in Eastern Europe in the 16—17th centuries in the sahajdak  and  saber  belts.  The  work  is  based  on  the  description  and  preliminary  classification  of  a  collection  of  forty  four  belt  buckle-hooks  from  the  collection  of  the  National  Museum  of  History  of  Ukraine.  A  brief  overview  of  sahajdak  and  saber  belts  was  also  made,  where  the  horizontal belt buckle-hooks are the main locking fastener. Analysis of archaeological finds and illustrative sources was also carried out.
