A late Iron Age/ early Roman (100 BC - AD 200) copper alloy strap fitting, probably from harness. It comprises a closed oval ring and resembles a terret ring in shape with a short bar between two terminal ends. The ring has a cross-section of 2.4mm diameter at the back, expanding to 6.1mm and 6.3mm diameter just before the moulded terminals. These are oval in cross-section (7.8x7.1mm and 8.2x7.0mm) and c.4.5mm wide. The bar between them is 3.4mm long and 5.6x4.4mm in cross-section. The metal is a greyish-blue green in colour and the surface is lightly pitted. The object measures 31.0mm…

An incomplete late Iron Age or early Roman (100 BC - AD 100) copper alloy strap union/ junction, perhaps from harness. Both strap bars survive only very fragmentally. The body is formed by two large crescents that meet their points to form an oval frame. Both crescents are plano-convex in section, being flat to the reverse and c.5.5mm thick. The area between the crescents is circular in shape (17.0mm diameter) and outlined by a deep groove. Within are three raised pointed-ovals (also of plano-convex cross-section and 4.9mm thick) arranged equidistantly around the inner edge, creating a…

An incomplete copper-alloy strap fitting, possibly of late Iron Age to early medieval date (c. 100 BC - 1100). The object is rectangular in form and sub-spherical in cross section and is incomplete. One end has three wedge-shaped, sub-spherical projections, which probably would have formed a loop of which is now missing. The latter forks at the end and terminates in an old break. The object is flat on the front and reverse, with a slight elevation on one side at the forked end. A wide groove runs down the centre of the forked end. This object parallels no. LANCUM-EDDD86. Length: 36 mm

Copper alloy possible strap fitting. Cast sub-ovoid or shield-shaped plate with four rounded cells occupying its display face. These appear apt to have received enamel, though the greyish scraps of material now left do not suggest any particular tint. A thick integrally cast and angled stalk of diameter 4.6mm projects from the back; it is uncertain whether this was part of a loop. Suggested date: Late Iron Age to Early Roman, 100 BC - AD 100 Length: 20.9mm, Width: 13mm, Thickness (clear of stalk): 1.9mm, Weight: 3.25gms

An Iron Age to Early Roman copper alloy strap junction, probably dating to c. 100 BC - AD 100. The junction consists of two symmetrical trapezoidal loops, sub-rectangular in cross section and with a recessed outer edge. The two loops are divided by a central, transverse cross-moulding, consisting of a thick, slightly bulbous, sub-oval band flanked by thinner collars; the reverse of the moulding is recessed. Dimensions: length 21.7mm; width 14.6mm; thickness 6.1mm; weight 5.81g. No exact parallel for this object has been identified; however its grey-green patina and form are both sug…

A cast copper-alloy strap fitting from the Late Iron Age (c.100 BC - AD 100), circular in plan, 16 mm in diameter, 4 mm in thickness and weight 4.05 g. Approximately 1 mm in from the circumference the fitting has been pierced by a tear-shaped hole, 4.7 mm in diameter; diametrically opposite it is a linear piercing 9 mm long and 1.5 mm wide. There are signs of wear around the edges of the circular piercing, suggesting that a fastening cord may have passed through it. On the obverse face a 5.5 mm long and 0.5 mm wide linear incision has been made, connecting the two piercings to produce …

A partial fragment of a possibly Iron Age (200 BC-AD 200 based on similar examples on database) strap fitting, similar to YORYM-686B90 and FAKL-19312B though less complete. The object appears to be half of a roughly bilaterally symmetrical piece of cast metal. The overall form appears to be of a stylised foliate nature, with thicker blade like spokes supporting roughly triangular spacers with concave circles enclosing a raised dome. The back is concave and appears to have two former attachment points, though any protrusions they may have supported are now broken away.

Copper-alloy harness or strap fitting, dating from the late Iron Age to early Romano-British period, c. 100 BC - AD 100. The fitting is in the form of a strap slider, and has a raised bar attached to the back with a rectangular void through which the strop would pass. The artefact is circular in shape and rectangular in cross section. It has openwork design as well as engraved relief work which defines two circles with a mirrored Celtic motif in each. The openwork is in the form of two teardrop shaped voids. These voids do not meet at their points; instead there is a thin band of p…

An incomplete cast copper alloy strap fitting/strap union dating to the Late Iron Age or early Roman period, c. 100 BC- 100 AD. The strap union has three circular rings joined at the central point to form a triangular formation. Only one ring is complete. On one side is a vertical strap bar. It is unclear how the opposing strap bar would have situated, if indeed there was one at all. Figure-of-eight strap unions are well documented. As this example has a triangular formation it may be best to catagorise it as a Taylor and Brailsford Type 4 (miscellaneous). Other strap unions with simi…

An incomplete late Iron Age to early Roman cast zoomorphic copper-alloy strap-fitting. A strap-distributor dating to the period 50 BC - AD 50. It is incomplete insofar as at least one of the two conjoined circular loops (D-shaped in cross-section) has broken off. There are worn projections which emerge beneath the horse's head, and it is from here that a possible third circular loop projected, now broken off. The remaining loop is circular, measuring 20.47mm in diameter, with the frame of the loop measuring 3.21mm in thickness. Inbetween the two (or possibly three) loops projects a ho…
