BUCKLE

Unique ID: SOM-37F867

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

Late Medieval or Post Medieval cast copper-alloy double-loop rectangular buckle frame missing the pin. The strap bar is considerably narrowed . The sides are trapezoid in cross section with flat front and back and angled sides. The outline of the loops forms a continuous elongated oval.

The frame is 27.46mm long with a maximum width of 24.48mm and a thickness of 1.85mm . It weighs 3.38g

Whitehead (2003:74) illustrates a very similar example, no.455 which he suggests are 'mainly AD 1570-1700' in date with no evidence given. As the form is so simple and plain a broader date range is possible.
