The pagan Bulgars on the Lower Danube have left only a few belt mounts. After Christianisation (864/5) the situation was changing, a lot of them have been found on the ground of old settlements and fortifications, esp. during the last decades with the help of metal detectors. During the 1930s and 1940s the Hungarian archaeologist Géza Fehér was the first who noticed the similarity with the findings of the Conquest Period in Hungary. In the article, prepared nearly 20 years ago, the specimens of a type selection have been collected, which may have formed complete sets. It is proposed that the Bulgarian belt garnitures, being dated between ca. 900 and ca. 1000 AD, are the result of the military conflicts with the Hungarians on the Lower Danube at the end of the 9th cent. and of cultural adoption by the Bulgarians (or vice versa).
