Fibulae-Kraftig-Profilierte-Type-with-Hinge-Pin This type of fibula featured a hinged closure pin. Fibulae were a common type of garment closure for the Romans. It is likely the design was brought to Scandinavia via the river trade routes to Byzantium (the eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire lasted until the Moslems conquered the city in 1453)
