A copper alloy medieval buckle plate dating to c AD 1250-1400. The buckle plate is from a single loop oval buckle with ornate outer edges, narrowed and offset strap bar. The buckle plate is incomplete and comprises a section of the top of the buckle plate and the remains of the two loops that would have folded over the strap bar. The fragment comprises a two short sections that would have folded over the strap bar and then widens to the outer edge. The outer edge gradually narrows towards the end of the plate. There are two rivet holes and the remains of a third (there were probably five rivet holes originally). There is an engraved zigzag border around the edge of the plate. The back of the plate is undecorated. There is evidence of gilding. Cf Whitehead, R, 2003, Buckles 1250-1800, Greenlight Publishing, Witham p23 no 105 (for the shape) and p24 no 114 (for the decoration).
