The central boss is 11.9mm in diameter, 2.3mm thick and worn; it has a outer, flat ring decorated with short radiating lines; the central raised section may be decorated with the letter 'ihs' (for Jesus), although this is too worn to be certain.

Cast cu-alloy fragment of a wrist clasp dating from the Early Medieval period. The obverse is decorated with a typical pattern made up of transverse grooves, lines and 'X's as well as two (possibly three) rows of punched circlets while the reverse is plain.

A copper-alloy strap loop of medieval date. Several examples of this category of artefact have been found in excavations in London. It is suggested that this particular type, with internal projections, is the earliest and probably dates from the late 12th to late 14th centuries (G. Egan and F. Pritchard; 1991; pp. 233). The function of such objects is thought to have been to secure loose straps on clothing. The frame is sub-trapezoidal in plan, the widest side being slightly convex. A short distance from the shorter vertical end of the frame are two opposing internal pointed project…

Fragment of a Post Medieval cast copper alloy dress or strap fitting, possibly a hooked tag (1500-1700 AD). The trapezoidal fragment represents probably around 40% of the original artefact. The tag or fitting might originally have been hand-shaped, and probably would have contained an openwork flower with six petals, two of which now remain. The fitting has moulded decoration on the obverse and a flat back which is undecorated. The shortest of the outside edges has a scar at each corner, where what was probably a rectangular attachment loop has broken off. The fragment is very worn and…

A copper-alloy S-shaped belt fastener of probable late 16th to 17th century AD date (H. Geake; 2001; pp. 36). The cast object takes the form of the heads and necks of two serpents or birds.

An incomplete copper-alloy belt mount of probable 17th or 18th century AD date. It has been suggested that these mounts may have been worn with naval uniform. For a similar example see PAS record no.

An incomplete copper-alloy belt mount of probable 17th or 18th century AD date. The object has been cast as one piece and the upper end bent back on itself to form a loop which could have been attached to a belt. The upper side takes the form of an elongated tongue-shaped moulding. At the top is a raised transverse ridge and below this is a cherub-like winged head. The narrow bottom end is occupied by a smaller human head. The folded rear portion (now bent out of alignment) has a much wider irregular plate and is bordered at the top by a transverse groove.

A copper-alloy s-shaped belt fastener of probable 17th to 19th century AD date. The object is slightly bent but has little wear or corrosion.

One half of a copper-alloy hasp and clasp fastener of suggested 17th century AD date (G. Bailey; 2004; pp. 100). No exact parallel could be found for this piece, which represents the plate into which the hooked half of the device would have fitted. The plate takes the form of an elongated scallop shell, with a series of moulded ridges in its upper surface. A sub-rectangular frame extends from the top of the object and either side of this is a perforated lug. A third perforated lug extends from the centre point of the bottom edge. These three holes would have served as a means of att…
