Medieval or Post Medieval cast copper alloy double loop buckle frame. The frame has two oval loops which are triangular in section with a flat back and steeply angled inner side and more bevelled outer side. The pin is missing. The buckle has a red brown surface with areas of green corrosion. The frame is 21.6mm long, 17.3mm wide and 2.2mm thick. It weighs 1.81 grams. Such a simple buckle is hard to date precisely, Whitehead (2003) illustrates a similar buckle (page 53, No.294) which he dates to c.1350-1650 AD.
