An incomplete cast copper-alloy possible mount or fitting possibly dating to the Early-Medieval period, c. 410-1066 AD.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy strap end dating to the late Early-Medieval period, c. 950-1100.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy single looped buckle of probable late Early Medieval to Medieval date, c. 900-1100.

Description: An irregular sub-rectangular fragment of 'hack' gold, cut on its upper and lower edges, curving slightly in plan and demonstrating some faceting to its upper face.
