Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete or almost complete late Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian) c.11th century copper-alloy zoomorphic stirrup terminal. The stirrup terminal is 'C' shaped in cross section, with a hollow socketed reverse. Lighter corrosion product within the socket is indicative of lead solder. Remains of what appears to be an integral plate seem to cover the socket however very little of this survives meaning that the funtion of this copper-alloy protrusion is uncertain. This might possibly be one of the terminals that Williams discusses as potentially having been cast with the stirrup in pos…
