An ornate openwork stirrup-strap mount of 11th-century date. The mount is notable for its anthropomorphic design; it features a central, facing, male figure surrounded by zoomorphic motifs. The central figure's head is in high relief, and bears traces of what may have been a beard or moustache, as well as a hairline or stylised helmet. The figure is naked, and some effort has been made to suggest muscle tone in the torso. The figure's arms and legs are apart, and around his upper legs lies some form of girdle, with an M-shaped profile. Below this hangs a straight rod (possibly a…

An incomplete Early-medieval Anglo Scandinavian cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal, dating to the 11th Century. Williams's classification of these terminals can be seen in 'Stirrup Terminals', 1997. The zoomorphic terminal depicts a beast's head and is D-shaped in section with a hollow shaft on the back and a small supporting ledge. The shaft contains traces of iron and soil but would have once have housed the iron stirrup arm. The terminal is decorated by Ringerike art style with a prominent brow, rounded ears, tendrils on each side and flared nostrils. The upper part of the termina…

Complete but worn cast copper-alloy stirrup strap mount dated from AD. c.1000 to c.1100. The item is roughly pentagonal in shape with the typical narrow flange at a right angle to the base of the mount; there is ferrous corrosion and traces of the two iron rivets originally used for fixing the mount to the top of the iron stirrup along the underside and reverse of this flange. There is also some slight iron staining adjacent to the rivet hole at the apex of the mount where it would have been attached to the leather strap. The design of the mount is openwork with three zoomorphic heads…

A corroded and incomplete fragment, possibly from a stirrup terminal of late Early-medieval (Anglo-Saxon) to early medieval date (11th Century). The function of stirrup terminals is discussed by David Williams, in his book "Late Saxon stirrup-strap mounts" (1997; pp. 6-7). For a complete example of this artefact type, see PAS record no. BH-C560D2. The object takes the form of half a (horizontally split) cylinder. The upper surface has two moulded collars, after which it has broken at both end, resulting in the loss of the terminal. On the underside is an applied substance - seeming…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late Anglo-Saxon date (c. 11th century AD). The mount is sub-pentagonal in form. It has a trefoil apex loop with small side knobs.

Early Medieval copper alloy stirrup strap mount. The object is triangular in form with a trefoil shaped upper terminal which contains a circular rivet hole. The object is obscured by wear and corrosion but probably had a raised border containing a raised, left facing, lion or dog with head facing upwards above its body and foreleg raised. Below the decoration are two further rivet holes, which sit next to each other just above a protruding lip on its reverse side which is. Apart from this lip the reverse is plain. The mount fits Williams' Class A, type 11A and is similar nos 202-228.

A complete cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount, dating to the end of the Late Saxon or Viking Age (AD 1000 - 1125). The mount is sub-pentagonal in form. From its apex, it widens to its maximum width, and its edges are complex, rather than straight, with flourishes that may represent foliate or zoomorphic ornament. The mount narrows to a waist, before widening straightening out towards the base. The basal edge is flat. Close to this edge are two large circular perforations, presumably for rivet attachment. A third rivet hole is present at the apex loop. All three rivets are now missi…
