Fibulae

A fibula is pin for fastening garments based on the safety-pin principle. The oldest fibulae are documented in the Bronze Age and were used until the High Middle Ages. Fibulae were used to fasten capes and coats e.g.. They replaced the garment needle. Besides its practical function they also served as decoration and could be provided with pendants.

Fibulae

They consist of a needle and a bracket. The oldest fibulae consist of two parts, while the younger types have needle and bracket connected with a resilient spiral or a hinge. They can be compared with brooches or safety pins. The advantage of a fibula in comparison to the needle is that the closable fibula cannot slip out of clothes easily. Fibulae were partly replaced by buckles as early as in ancient.
