Description The paper sums up the hitherto knowledge of sword belts from the 9th and 10th centuries in central and western Europe. Sword belts were of a relatively heterogeneous appearance. We can distinguish three main types: sets with trefoil mount, and the Závada and Marsum types. All three types of sword belt sets emerged on the territory of the Frankish Empire.
