Record ID: NMS-721D2F
Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Medieval single loop oval buckle with attached plate fragment. The end of the buckle loop is expanded into a rectangular-shaped lip with four axially aligned grooves on it's upper surface. The pin only survives as a loop around the narrowed bar. The rectangular single piece plate is extant although the majority of the reverse side is missing after it wraps around the bar. There is a central extant rivet just behind the pin and single rivet holes in each corner of the attachment end of the front plate. Circa AD1250-1400.

Record ID: NMS-332DDC
Object type: LEASH
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Copper alloy Medieval to Post Medieval swivel. Two oval loops, flattened and expanded at the axis where they touch. One of the loops has an integral central spindle bar that passes through a hole in the body of the second, where it is mushroomed over to secure it in place. The two loops still swivel freely against each other. Amongst other uses spindles were used on animal leashes and attachments such as purses. This example is plain and small in comparison to some Medieval examples and is probably late Medieval to Post Medieval in date. Circa AD1350-1650.

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval copper alloy composite strap end. The strap end is formed by two sheets of copper alloy riveted by a copper alloy rivet at both ends, with a third spacer element sandwiched inbetween. The strap end is sub-rectangular but tapers slightly along it's length to an abrupt trefoil terminal. The plate is decorated on one side only by two lines of rocker-arm work running obliquely across the width. A very small piece of leather was originally retained within the gap between the copper sheets but this has now become dislodged and disintegrated. Circa AD1250-1400.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete copper alloy artefact, probably a fragment of a Medieval harness fitting. A thick half-oval-section plate broken at one end across a circular central hole terminates at the other in a robust oval loop. The remaining plate when viewed side-on suggests a slightly curving profile. Between the break and the loop there is a further hole containing the remains of an iron rivet. Medieval Buckles are shown in Whitehead, R. 'Buckles 1200-1850. p35. with two loops joined by an integral plate that are similar to this fragment albeit, with more circular loops. Likewise Egan, G. Prichard…
