BUCKLE

Unique ID: PAS-75BC84

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

A medieval copper-alloy single-looped buckle frame, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin, but otherwise intact. The frame is oval and with an expanded outer edge. The pin bar is narrowed and offset. The sides are slightly thickened at the ends of the pin bar. The frame is bevelled from the internal edge to the external on the front; the reverse is flat. One of the sides of the buckle has been bent upwards as a result of old damage.

The frame measures 17.9mm by 24.7mm by 2.8mm (maximum thickness). It weighs 2.60g. It is can be classified as Meols type 2 and compared with a buckle illustrated in Egan (2007, 91; no. 491). As such it can be dated to the later 13th or 14th century.

Class: Meols type 2
