BUCKLE

Unique ID: SUSS-FCA426

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Incomplete cast copper alloy medieval or post medieval double loop buckle frame. 23.7mm long, 23.9mm wide, 1.7mm thick and 1.6 grams in weight. About 70% of loop has gone from old breaks. The other is D shaped in profile with an expanded outer edge. The centre bar is 12.5mm long and 1.8mm wide. This buckle is of a very simple design making dating difficult; a date of 1350-1720 is suggested based on Whitehead (2003) page 52.
