A copper-alloy fragment of a Medieval buckle, dating to AD 1270-1400. It is a section of the D-shaped cross-sectioned buckle frame, which has an ornate outside edge and a surviving knob at the beginning of the missing pin-bar. The outside edge has a sub-rectangular extension, which bears on its front face two incised Xs at each slightly rounded end and a transverse groove in the centre as pin rest.
