They  were truly ring belts.  They were NOT buckles that had lost their  tang.  Not at all.  We saw one that we could walk right up  to, touch and observe quite closely.  It was indeed a ring belt  with the knot to hold the belt in place.  It was on a woman's  Viking dress which also had beautiful wool trim and wonderful  broaches.  As I said before, thought, the belt was very narrow  compared to what I usually see in the SCA.
