A broken and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow channel running along the reverse of the object would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end has been broken off. Below, there is a bulbous moulding which thins in a step as it travels down at an angle before narrowing into a rounded tip. Beyond the step the front of the head is decorated with a V-shaped engraved line, its point e…

A cast copper-alloy buckle with integral plate of late early-medieval date (c. 10th-11th century). The frame is a slightly asymmetrical, elongated D shape with a possibly zoomorphic protrusion at the outer edge. The plate is slightly narrowed as it meets the frame, but widens slightly and gradually towards the attachment end, by which point it is approximately the same width as the frame. Adjacent to the frame is a perforation around which the pin would have been looped; the pin is now missing. Towards the terminal is a rivet hole in which the corroded remains of the iron rivet are st…

A broken and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss; to one side the arm and its terminal loop has been lost. The arms are D-shaped in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At what would have been the centre of the complete link there is a low oval boss which is hollow on the reverse. The complete arm terminates in a circular loop that features three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-brown colour with some small patches of light-green corrosion product.

A cast copper-alloy fragment probably part of the sheath from the side of a late early-medieval stirrup, or possibly part from the upper end of a stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The curved hollow reverse would have enclosed the sides of the stirrup's iron frame; it retains possible traces of a lead-alloy solder. The fragment is U shaped in cross-section. A slightly wider element is delineated by two transverse ridges. Beyond one of the ridges the object is vestigial. At the other end it continues, similarly cruved in profile, tapering slightly before having been broken as a re…

A late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). This hollow contains traces of the lead solder by which the terminal was attached to the stirrup. The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end is seemingly abraded, though the extent of the losses it has suffered is not clear. Below, the head is moulded, with a central area defined by bevelled sides which flatten out at their edges. Retained between…

A fragment from a late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). The flat base is abraded on all sides and the recess above appears to contain iron corrosion product. The terminal is zoomorphic and rendered in three dimensions, representing a beast's head with a snub-nose with flaring nostrils. Around the nose are tendril-like moulded lip lappets with tight curls at their tips. The tendrils enclose a V-shaped incision which would have continued into t…

A complete copper-alloy strap distributor, bent to one side at one end (c. 10th-11th century). It is formed of two opposing strap loops, broadly triangular, with external recessed strap bars, which are connected by a central moulded animal head. The animal is viewed en face and is cat like, with small, slightly pointed ears, and two converging curved ridges which form both the eyebrows and nose; they do not meet. In profile the animal head can be seen to have gaping jaws. Emerging from the jaws, mirrored behind each ear, is an outcurving tendril. These have bevelled sides. On the fro…

A cast copper-alloy artefact of c. 11th-century date, probably a strap-fitting. The object is a ring with a thick, slightly angular hoop and convex crude quatrefoil bezel. The quatrefoil head is perpendicular to the hoop. It is decorated with four triangular grooves arranged in saltire, but not meeting at the centre. The quatrefoil thus created has elements of slightly different sizes, one perpendicular to the hoop being quite small compared to the others. The artefact is now a red-brown colour, covered in patches of light-green corrosion product The artefact can be paralleled to a st…

An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object would have consisted of a central circular plate with boss from which four arms would have emerged, one at each cardinal point; one arm has been lost completely, while another arm now only has a vestigial loop. Integral with the central circle is a high domed boss which is hollow backed. The arms are semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. The surviving loops are oval and bevelled externally. They feature three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-b…

A corroded and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss, though one half of the plate beyond the boss, along with its loop, have been lost. The arm is semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At one end of this is a moulded boss extending either side of the plate. It represents a face, probably zoomorphic rather than anthropomorphic. Just protruding above the plate are a pair of pointed ears. Below the plate is the nose and the lopsided V-shaped mouth. The nose is moulded, triangular, as…

An incomplete late early-medieval (late Anglo-Saxon) to medieval copper-alloy cloisonné enamelled disc brooch (late 10th - 11th century), of the Saunderton type (Weetch Type 20.A). The brooch is constructed from a base-plate of copper alloy originally with seven equidistant rounded projections; three have been snapped off completely, with only four surviving, non consecutively. A circular copper-alloy collar has been soldered onto this base plate and set within the collar is the cloisonné enamel pattern. The pattern is marked out by copper alloy cells and comprises six conjoined tri…

An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 2 (probably geometric style), surviving well. This would date the artefact to around the 9th century AD. The strap-end is flat in profile. The plate widens very slightly from the attachment end to a widest point at around the mid-point of the plate, not including the terminal; it can be described as shallowly convex, or bowed. This latter is an integral animal head. The split end has been bent down slightly, with the lower split part bent down slightly more besides. It is slightly abraded, and …
