Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete copper-alloy buckle of medieval date, c.AD 1350 - 1450. The buckle has a single looped oval frame with a projecting lip to the outer edge. From the opposite side of the loop an integral forked spacer extends, each arm flanking a narrowed pin bar. One arm tapers to a blunted point while the other terminates in a worn break.

The metal has a dark brown/green patina and is worn. The buckle is 64mm long, 14.9mm wide, 3.4mm thick and weighs 4.6g.

Similar examples are illustrated in Whitehead, p.36-37 and are dated to circa AD 1350 - 1450.
