STRAP END

Unique ID: SF-A4DC3C

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

An iincomplete cast copper-alloy strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is rectangular in plan and rather elongated, tapering at its base to form a rather devolved cruciform terminal. The upper section of one plate is missing in an old break, but otherwise it is preserved intact, the two plates secured together at both its upper edge and base by means of two circular-sectioned rivets. Preserved in rather poor condition with a coarse greenish patina, it measures 64.71mm in length, 8.47mm wide by 3.28mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 7.67g.

An identical strap end has been recorded on the PAS database as LEIC-7C3B85.
