Sösdala and Fulltofta: bridles and saddles
Linnaeus University, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Department of Cultural Sciences.
2017 (English)In: The Sösdala horsemen: and the equestrian elite of fifth century Europe / [ed] Charlotte Fabech, Ulf Näsman, Højbjerg: Jutland archaeological society , 2017, p. 153-193Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The typochronology of selected mounts of bridle and saddles found at Sösdala and Fulltofta in Scania is discussed. The parade bridle Sösdala I has mounts from different sources, one closely related to late Roman craftsmanship, the others to “Barbarian” settings. It is dated to the early Migration Period. The bridle Sösdala II is of lower quality and probably from the end of the Late Roman Iron Age. The Fulltofta bridle was probably produced in the Late Roman Iron Age but updated with silver covers in “Sösdala” style and deposited in the early Migration Period. Between seven and thirteen saddles were cut to pieces at Sösdala I. At Fulltofta only few remains of a saddle were recovered. The Sösdala mounts define a common “Sösdala saddle type” and the Fulltofta mounts define a rare “Fulltofta type”. The two types are placed in between earlier saddles of “Ejsbøl type” and later saddles of “Högom type”.
