County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Early Medieval to early Medieval copper alloy stirrup terminal, probably dating to c. AD 1000-1100. The object is now highly abraded, but is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section, tapering into a sub-circular sectioned debased urnes-style crested animal head which curls around to meet the main body of the terminal and form a circular aperture. The interior (sub-triangular) face of the terminal is concave, and retains a significant amount of iron corrosion, although the outer edges (and possible face) have been lost. Dimensions: height 22.4mm; width 21.5mm;…

Object type: DIE STAMP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Buckinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy rectangular object, 24.4mm by 21.8mm and 4.4mm thick with deeply incised decoration in the form of a stylised face, with ovate eyes, triangular nose and deeply incised lines representing a haristyle. The decoration is incised suggesting the object has a function as a mould or die. This is likely to be an early-Medieval (Anglo-Saxon) die stamp for making pressblach foils for small decorative items. These generally fall into two groups; those used to create foils for bracteates and button or saucer brooches (late 5th-early 6th century) or stamps for creating pressblach foil…

Two refitting lengths of sheet copper alloy, possibly part of a binding strip, of probable Early Saxon date (c. AD 500 - 600). Each fragment is slightly curved and terminates in a break at either end. The strips refit at one end, but not at the other, therefore it is not possible to determine the approximate circumference of the original object.
