County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 …

An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, tentatively classified as Thomas's (2003, 4) Class A, Type 4 (with enamel). This would date the artefact to around the 9th century. The strap-end is of unusual form and construction, and therefore of note. It has curvilinear sides with their widest point around the centre of the main plate. It terminates in a devolved animal head decorated simply with a transverse ridge at the plate end. The plate is formed of conjoined cells of elongated scrolled C shape. There are two larger such cells that abut back-to-back at the terminal, above which t…

A slightly corroded fragment from a late early-medieval/Anglo-Scandinavian cast copper-alloy cheekpiece (c. 11th century AD). The fragment is formed of a curved Ringerike style animal head and neck in profile. The cheekpiece is flat on the reverse, and bevelled around the edges of a flat front. The neck is long and the head is set at roughly right angles to it, but flares out to more like forty-five degrees at the top. On the outer edge of the curve is a three-pointed protrusion, suggesting a crest; this is slightly recessed. At the end of the head is an angled point (at forty-five de…

An early-medieval cast copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 2 (probably geometric style), slightly damaged at the attachment end.

The plate expands from a width of c. 9.3mm the attachment end to a maximum width of c. 12.6mm at the base of the split. From this point it tapers consistently towards an animal head terminal. The split end has been bent down slighty. On both halves the pairs of rivet holes have been abraded through. The plate is unifacially de…

A copper-alloy button brooch of early-medieval date (5th - 6th century AD), of Class C. This example is incomplete in so far as its iron pin been lost to corrosion; a trace of corrosion product is present adjacent to one of the lugs (now so abraded that one cannot distinguish the pin lug from catch-plate). The rim is upturned (H.: 3.2mm) and very slightly flared. The upper surface is decorated with a central moulded anthropomorphic face-mask viewed straight on within a line border. The helmet is formed a pair of nested peltaic outlines. The eyebrows and nose are formed of a single T-s…

An early-medieval copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 1 (Trewhiddle style), slightly damaged at the attachment end.

The upper half of the split attachment end survives intact, pierced twice, though neither rivet survives. It has also been bent upwards. The lowe…

An incomplete early-medieval cast copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 1 (Trewhiddle style), broken across the main panel before the animal head terminal. This would date the artefact to around the 9th century AD. The strap-end is flat in profile, though bent downwards at an angle at the terminal as a result of the old damage mentioned. The plate is sub-rectangular with sides that tapered very gradually towards an animal head terminal. Both halves of the split attachment end survive, though neither rivet is in situ in the two rivet holes; one of th…

County: Somerset

Description: Rectangular bar-shaped ingot with concave ends. The upper and lower surfaces and the sides are hammered smooth, with ancient abrasions. Metal analysis: Surface metal analysis conducted at the British Museum by the Department of Conservation and Scientific Research indicated an approximate silver content for the ingot of 81%, the remainder being copper, iron, zinc, lead, gold and tin. This surface analysis is likely to give a slight overestimate of the silver content of the core metal as corrosion alters the composition of the surface of the ingot by preferentially leac…

A rectangular object, probably a mount, cast in copper alloy of probable late early-medieval date (c. 9th/10th century AD). Broadly rectangular, it has slightly concave long sides. Both short ends are slightly ragged with irregular protrusions, it is unclear whether these are unfinished or old breaks. It is probable the object previously continued below the lower edge where there is the stub of a projection which is narrower than the existing piece. A zoomorphic design fills the field which is bordered all around with a plain raised border. Made in sunken low relief the device is a…
