Medieval copper alloy buckle fragment, 24mm long, 14mm wide and 10mm thick with a weight of 5.23grams. The object consists of the pin rest portion of a probably rectangular frame. It has a rectangular cross section and is decorated with a series of transverse depressions. There is a central one, forming the pin rest, which is flanked closely by two more. Each edge has a further depression before its rounded corners. What is present suggests that the buckle frame from this point is much narrower and rectangular in section.
