The tenth volume of Dissertations series entitled "The belt south of Lower Danube– the end of the 3rd c. – the beginning of the 7th c." by Dr. Luyba Traykova, Department of Classic Archaeology (NAIM-BAS) has been published.

The subject of this dissertation is metal belt elements – buckles, appliqués and strap-ends from the territory of today’s Bulgaria for the period of the end of the 3rd - beginning of the 7th century. A classification and typology created for each type of belt sets are created. The study contains 2044 catalogue entries. The study includes chronology of belt sets and chronological markers. Only the finds with certain archaeological contexts have been considered when tracing the territorial distribution of belt fittings.

Following the analyses conducted, three chronological belt groups have been identified for the date of the groups and types of belt sets. Graphical reconstructions of belt sets are proposed.

The study includes: catalogue, 166 tables whit illustrations, 7 distribution maps, 4 diagrams, 8 tables and list of objects.
