BUCKLE

Unique ID: SF-65D490

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

A small cast copper-alloy double-looped buckle of late Medieval to Post-Medieval date. It has oval shaped frames with slightly thickened outer edges, separated by a central bar that is trapezoidal in section and has small projecting triangular knops at either side of the frame. On their front faces the outer edges of the frames have three incised diagonal grooves, probably serving as pin rests. This buckle measures 12.98mm in width, 18.80mm in length, 1.85mm in thickness, and weighs 1.21g. This buckle is similar to examples published from Norwich (Margeson, 1993: nos. 166, 173) and is of probable later Medieval to Post-Medieval date, c.15th-17th centuries AD.
