The belt plates / belt itself is a well known find from Sarkel, and was known to inhabit the regions of the "Rus" / Eastern Slavs. The original is well kept at the Hermitage Museum St.Petersburg.

Sarkel was one of the principal defenses of the Khazar Kaganate. It was taken and burned in 965 by Svyatoslav Igorevich of Kiev. The treasure was thus deposited at some point between 954 and 965, possibly in connection with that last battle.

The belt in question has been worn at several Viking events World wide, those are: Foteviken in Sweden, Moesgaard (Denmark) Wolin (Poland) Neustadt Glewe (Burgfest) and several shows in the United Kingdom also, and has passed authenticity there.
