Description A large, and so far unpublishe d, collection of belts and belt mounts made of modest materials that were found in the southern part of the Netherland s shows that even common late medieval men and women decorated their accessorie s with a lot of shiny mounts, with which they deliberate ly or unintentio nally impressed the people they met in the street. Their adornments varied from rivets via fake coins and imitation coats of arms to entire texts: the bling-blin g of the Late Middle Ages.
