I have no idea but I thought I'd revive this because I'd like to know. What's your theory?

The leather rotted away, didn't it? I'm not entirely sure, but if it did then there's no way of really knowing.

I was in Uppsala not long ago and looked at some of the finds.
Those beltpieces that i saw was about 5 cm high and 4 cm wide. They still had leather from the belt on the inside that showed how they would have been attached.
I dont know how close together they where on the belt since the only leather left was on the inside.
