Record ID: PAS-2F5E63
Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A broken and incomplete copper-alloy scabbard chape of medieval date, missing its side arms which would have been connected to each other via a perforated terminal loop. The fitting is zoomorphic, representing a winged animal in profile, probably a bird, whose head is at the arm end of the base plate. It was formed from a single plate that has been folded in half. The animal's tail is at the bend. The ends of the plate have been riveted together and are in the shape of the animal's head; the rivet survives and appears to have been made of a different alloy. There is a sub-triangular p…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper-alloy sub-oval buckle frame dating from the 11th or 12th century. The outer edge and sides sub-triangular in cross-section; the latter develop into moulded devolved animal heads at each end of the bar (beast biting bar type). The bevelled front of the outer edge is decorated with engraved lines, transverse towards the centre, tending towards oblique on the sides. The bar is narrower than the frame and is recessed. The pin is missing but there is a groove to act as a pin rest. Iron corrosion product on both surfaces at the end of one of the sides, around the animal head, is cu…

Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A worn and corroded copper-alloy strap-fitting of medieval date. The artefact has a sub D-shaped frame with central internal projection from its outer edge. The incurved outer edge effectively consists of a pair of semicircles which converge in this projection which terminates in a slightly expanded knob. The front of the object is bevelled slightly both externally and internally on the front; the reverse is flat. Around the bar part of a sheet plate has been retained; since it is partial the artefact can be considered incomplete, although the frame is an intact component. The plate is…

A medieval copper-alloy buckle of the 'gaping-mouth beast' type, complete with its pin (c. 12th century). This buckle is moulded in three dimensions and takes the form of a hollow, open-mouthed animal head which is integrally cast with a frame and bar. The head is sub-circular when viewed from above and a three quarters circle in cross-section. The top of the head is decorated with a central nasal ridge which bifurcates about halfway along the head to turn into ears which continue down the sides of the head to the base. Set in front of the ears are moulded elongated oval eyes which sta…

A copper-alloy pin detached from a medieval buckle described as a 'disc-on-pin' type, and classifiable as Redmayne's Type B. The pin is formed of a large central circular plate with protrusions emerging from opposing points. The first of the protrusions is the pin tip, which gradually tapers to a blunted point. The loop, opposite, is slightly recessed on the front and curves back behind the plate, but does not form a closed loop. The front of the plate is highly decorated. It is moulded, with two main wide borders, that at the circumference lower than that within it. They both surround…

A possible copper-alloy candle holder of medieval date with two cups. The object is of one piece, consisting of a stem hammered flat and bent round to form an elongated socket at one end, while the other end expands and bifurcates, developing into two arms which terminate in either cups or holders for rushlights. The arms have rectangular cross-section, and change into a twisted bar towards the cup ends. The cups are formed of flattened tabs with rounded ends curled right round on themselves, both squashed. One of the arms has been twisted round and down and now sits over the sock…

An incomplete or fragmentary copper-alloy mount of probable medieval to post-medieval date. The mount is flat and has stepped long edges formed of conjoined trapezoids that decrease in size: three such trapezoids survive to form the present object. The smallest trapezoid forms the terminal of the object and is bifurcated at its own terminal. It is also covered in an applied thin white metal sheet, which extends, abraded, into the adjacent trapezoid. On the reverse, at the terminal, is an integral rivet. The object has been curved in profile, and has been bent downwards in particu…

An incomplete copper-alloy plate, presumably from a strap, of probable medieval date. The plate is broadly rectangular, rounded at the surviving corners, having been abraded, and broken at the other short end where it has been bent upwards slightly as a result of old damage. The front is quite heavily scratched but appears to be undecorated. At the extant corners two integral rivets are present on the reverse. These have hammering marks between them. The object generally has a brown patina. It measures 27.7mm long by 13.5mm wide by 2.1mm thick; it weighs 4.53g

An incomplete copper-alloy plate almost certainly from a medieval clasp. Half of the plate survives here, following a transverse break at the fold. The plate is sub-rectangular, with a cusped attachment end. At the attachment end are four triangular removals which would have created five knops, including those at the corners. Two knops have been broken off towards one of the corners as a result of old damage. Engraved angled lines at the base of each knop emphasise each protrusion on the front. The front is decorated within a border line towards each long edge, between which a seri…

An incomplete copper-alloy object of medieval date: possibly a casket handle of 13th- to 14th-century date. The original form of the artefact would probably have resembled the letter 'M'. What survives is a central sub-trapezoidal plate, from which emerge two truncated arms. The plate is thick and has a circular outward facing knop at each corner of its longest side. This and the two sides perpendicular to it are slightly incurved. The short side is wavy, and consists of the point of a triangle located centrally with small recesses at each side. The triangle is formed of the interior …

An incomplete copper-alloy mount of medieval to post-medieval date; its wider function is uncertain, though it is possibly part of a buckle with integral plate. It consists of a flat bar with a trefoilate terminal at one end, distinguished from the bar by a low transverse, flanged ridge. One of the side elements of the trefoil has been broken off. The terminal is pierced to take a rivet; no rivet survives. At the other end of the bar the object expands in a curve to attain a consistent width, at which point the object has been broken in a fairly ragged transverse, old break. The expan…

A medieval copper-alloy strap-plate consisting of a broadly rectangular sheet with a central perforation through the front. It would have been riveted to an equivalent plate by four rivets located towards each corner. The rivets have a circular cross-section, and all four survive in situ, their head flush to the surface of the plate. The plate is cusped to emphasise the corners, by an engraved V shape central at each short end, and smaller V-shaped lines towards the corner on the long edge. There are further, finer engraved lines between these latter, at each corner. There are also su…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy annular brooch of medieval date (c. 13th century AD). It has a circular, cable decorated (twisted) frame seemingly formed of one single rotation, and thus falls into Deevy's Class 3a for which a 12th- to 14th-century date has been suggested (Deevy 1998, 17). It has a broadly circular cross-section. Around a pin constriction a cast pin with collar below the loop, surviving in situ. It is circular in cross-section and tapers to a point. It has been bent to one side as a result of old damage. Both brooch and pin have corroded to the same light-green colour. It measures …

An incomplete medieval silver penny of Edward I (1272-1307). Class 9b2 (North 1037/1) dating to 1300. Mint of Durham. North (1991, 30). The coin measures 18.4mm in diameter, is 1.0mm thick and weighs 1.27g. It has suffered some signficant losses at different points of its circumference. The letter S on the reverse is distinctive and not easily associated with Class 9b; it may be that this is a mule with a Class 10ab reverse. However, the reverse is too worn to be certain about this.

A copper-alloy fragment from a probable strap-fitting of medieval date. It consists of a sub-rectangular flat plate that has been broken through a rivet hole towards one of its original terminals. Beyond the hole the object narrows slightly to a waist before a transverse flange of similar width to the plate before it narrows. After the flange the terminal develops into a narrowed hook that is recurving, and broken in about the same plane as the base on the plate, having travelled above it as it curves. This may have been a hook, or it may have turned into a loop. The remnant has been …
