A corroded and incomplete stirrup terminal of late Early-medieval (Anglo-Saxon) to early medieval date. 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 lobes, which represent the ears or eyes of an animal. The remainder of the animal's features are missing. On the underside is an applied substance - seemingly some form of solder …

A fragment from an openwork Late Saxon stirrup-strap mount of Williams' Class A, Type 12. Like all stirrup strap mounts of this type, the present example is diamond-shaped, with a flat base, with four preforations. The edges have been lost, and the original mount may once have had circular bosses projecting from it. Stirrup-strap mounts date broadly to the 11th century.

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century AD date. No exact match could be found for this piece, but its form is most closely paralleled with those of Williams Class A, type 11B (D. Williams; 1997; pp. 66-7). The mount has a flat bottom edge and slightly convex vertical sides which extend into a rounded top edge. It is of an openwork design and depicts an animal (most of the lesser corroded examples of this type appear to be lions) standing left, its right forepaw raised, its head facing right and touching the upward-curled tail. The apex loop is simple in form, bein…

A cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount. It is a sub-rectangular shape in plan, however the upper edge tapers slightly and is incomplete. The sides are moulded with a pair on integral knops protruding, and the lower corners also have a single knop. The broken upper edge forms an asymmetrical 'V', but this damage is not too recent. The break may have occurred at a perforation, and the perforation then moved just below and off centre. The outer face is decorated with a high-relief simplistic animal head which is in the form of an upward pointing arrow with a pair of curved knops protrud…
