STRAP FITTING

Unique ID: BUC-3CEF53

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find validated and published by finds advisers

A silver fragment of a belt clasp or hook. The terminals of the hook are missing but the hook would have been S-shaped. The central area is waisted with three raised circular bands in the centre (the central band is widest). Either side of this the hook has irregular linear surface decoration (possibly intended to represent foliage) before narrowing to undecorated sections towards the broken ends, which are circular in section. Similar hooks often have zoomorphic terminals and were used in place of a buckle.
