A broken and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow channel running along the reverse of the object would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end has been broken off. Below, there is a bulbous moulding which thins in a step as it travels down at an angle before narrowing into a rounded tip. Beyond the step the front of the head is decorated with a V-shaped engraved line, its point e…

A cast copper-alloy fragment probably part of the sheath from the side of a late early-medieval stirrup, or possibly part from the upper end of a stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The curved hollow reverse would have enclosed the sides of the stirrup's iron frame; it retains possible traces of a lead-alloy solder. The fragment is U shaped in cross-section. A slightly wider element is delineated by two transverse ridges. Beyond one of the ridges the object is vestigial. At the other end it continues, similarly cruved in profile, tapering slightly before having been broken as a re…

A late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). This hollow contains traces of the lead solder by which the terminal was attached to the stirrup. The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end is seemingly abraded, though the extent of the losses it has suffered is not clear. Below, the head is moulded, with a central area defined by bevelled sides which flatten out at their edges. Retained between…

A complete copper-alloy strap distributor, bent to one side at one end (c. 10th-11th century). It is formed of two opposing strap loops, broadly triangular, with external recessed strap bars, which are connected by a central moulded animal head. The animal is viewed en face and is cat like, with small, slightly pointed ears, and two converging curved ridges which form both the eyebrows and nose; they do not meet. In profile the animal head can be seen to have gaping jaws. Emerging from the jaws, mirrored behind each ear, is an outcurving tendril. These have bevelled sides. On the fro…
