BUCKLE

Unique ID: NMS-60799F

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

Incomplete rectangular buckle frame made from cut and folded thick sheet, with a (missing) separate central bar. The outside edge and most of both sides are extant. The inside edge would have been an iron spindle within a sheet roller, set into holes through the two sides. The bar, also of iron, would have been set in the two similar extant holes in the notched and expanded sides, and held a pin and sheet plate. The outside edge is thick and broad with a V-shaped groove along the outer edge wide and a groove for the pin rest. Extant length (unbent) 27mm. Width 16mm. Cf. two examples from London (Fingerlin 1971 Abb. 324 Kat. Nr. 229 and Abb. 325 Kat. Nr. 192). Several similar buckles have been found in Norfolk, eg at Binham (HER 34325), Carleton Rode (HER 23418) and Kenninghall/Quidenham (HER37188). 15th century.
