BUCKLE

Unique ID: HAMP-631806

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

An incomplete Late Medieval copper-alloy annular buckle frame with central strap bar and decorative frame, missing its pin. It measures 32.51x31.57mm (internal loops c.8x19mm) and weighs 7.56g.

One half of the frame (to one side of the strap-bar) is decorated with equidistant transverse grooves. The other half has two constrictions on the outer edge, with a lobe at either side, the area between containing multiple and more closely spaced transverse grooves. Iron corrosion on the bar suggest the pin would have been iron.

A similar buckle is illustrated by Whitehead (2003, 46), no.266, which he dates to c.1400-1500.
