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

A copper alloy medieval single loop D-shaped buckle dating to c AD 1250-1400. The buckle is complete. It comprises a D shaped frame which broadens as it reaches the centre where there is small triangular depression to fit the pin. The D shape changes direction just before the bar which is integral to the frame. The pin is a single piece of copper alloy which is curled round the bar and then narrows towards the top edge of the frame. The patina is a brownish green with small patches of lighter green. The buckle weighs 6.75g and measures 29.63mm in length, 29.31mm in width and 3.48mm in thickness. Cf Whitehead, R, 2003, Buckles 1250-1800, Greenlight Publishing, Witham p 18 no 45.
