A belt with a large buckle indicated that the wearer was of high status. Belts were also used to hold a knight's sword and other weapons and both men and women wore them.
Viking belt design was not gender-specific. Women and children wished to have belts that were just as ornate as the men's. However, men were the only ones who could wear a belt with a large buckle. This was because only men were allowed to carry weapons.
Women did not agree with this, and they found ways around it. They would wear a belt with small knives hidden in them. This way, they could defend themselves if they needed to.
