BUCKLE

Unique ID: LON-8681C8

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

A small cast copper-alloy buckle now missing its pin. The buckle is of the double loop oval type and is undecorated. The reverse of the buckle is flat while the obverse is moulded. The artefact is worn with a green patina. It measures 18.0mm length x 21.6mm width x 3.1mm thick and weighs 2.69g.

As Whitehead (1996, 52) states, undecorated buckles of this form are undiagnostic and could date from either the medieval or post-medieval periods (c.1250-1650 AD).
