A cast copper alloy stirrup terminal. The terminal is formed by a semi-cylindrical casing which is angled at 45° and an integral horizontal block protruding from the base of the casing. The casing is semi-circular in section and has moulded decoration on the exterior which consists on a collar along the upper edge, and the lower edge. These ovals may be representing eyes. The reverse of the casing has a grey coating which was probably the remains of lead solder. The sides of the block are decorated with moulded vertical ribs within a linear border. The terminal of the block which ext…

Early Medieval cast copper alloy stirrup terminal. The terminal is of zoomorphic design and is incomplete. The back of the animal would have formed a hollow tube to house the lower part of the stirrup, however the tube is now missing with an old, worn break on the surviving section of the terminal. The tube would have been ‘D’ shaped in section where it joined the terminal. The internal surface of the end of tube does not show any traces of iron or solder. The terminal is of an openwork design, comprised of a stylised crested animal head, which is curled to form a large openwork c…

A copper alloy terminal from an iron stirrup. The terminal is in the form of a serpent-like beast whose head, with crest of interlace strips, looks back up the stirrup and whose body curls around to form the stirrup side. The fitting is tubular and retains the remains of the iron stirrup side within it. The upper part of the tube widens and then contracts. On one side there are traces of engraved decoration but there are no clear traces of an inlay.

An incomplete Early Medieval Anglo Scandinavian cast copper-alloy Stirrup Terminal.

A stirrup-strap mount of Williams, Class A, Type 6. The apex of the mount is missing and two iron rivets survive in the lower face. There appear to be traces of niello inlay on the upper part. The ornament on Type 6 mounts comprises a pair of facing serpent-like creatures each of whose tails bifurcate and end in scrolls. Centrally there is a tree-like form. Iron corrosion obscures most of the details of the creatures' heads. An animal head would have formed the missing apex.

A slightly incomplete cast copper alloy stirrup terminal, dating to the Early Medieval period, between AD 1000 – 1100 (length: 38mm; width: 11mm; thickness: 12.5mm; weight: 11.4g).

At 8mm below the broken top of the artefact, an animal’s head is represented with di…
