A cast copper artefact, probably a strap mount of Early Medieval date, about AD 800 - 1100. It is sub-triangular (almost bell-shaped) and has rounded corners.

There is decoration on the front face, possibly originally inlaid, that is now worn, but it is probably a degraded version of a zoomorphic motif. The reverse is plain and slightly concave. There are three rivet holes, one in each corner. They are about 1.7mm diameter. The artefact has a smooth, brown patina. It is 23…

Lead Bead. Cast flat-ended biconical or barrel shaped bead with a central moulded aperture of diameter 3.5-6mm. The aperture is too small to admit a spindle, but the form is comparable to that of toggles used as drawstring fasteners for a girdle, and sometimes confused with whorls in the archaeological literature (e.g. Smith 1912, 153 and Lethbridge 1931, 76, cited in Drinkall and Foreman 1998, page 294); and, albeit in different material, of Early Anglo-Saxon sword beads. The surface of the object is crazed, as if from destructive corrosion, and patinated overall. Suggested date: Earl…
