A Post-Medieval copper alloy rowel spur, probably dating to c. AD 1700-1850. The spur is fragmentary, with only one abraded arm and a circular-sectioned neck surviving. The rowel box, rowel and second arm all lost to old breaks. The surviving arm is plano-convex in cross section. The spur appears undecorated, but has surviving traces of a white metal coating. Dimensions: length 71.5mm; width c. 73mm; thickness 11.7mm; weight 23.60g. Ellis (2002) notes that rowel spurs largely replaced prick spurs in Western Europe from the 14th century onwards, however most examples are much later th…

Part of one arm of a copper-alloy spur of medieval or post-medieval date. The surviving part is straight with a D-shaped cross-section and tapers towards the end. It has a figure of eight terminal with the arm meeting the terminal between the two loops. The holes retain their iron fixings. While this form was in use by the mid-12th century (Ellis 2002: 4; Clark 1995: 128 suggests mid-14th, fig. 333) it continued into the post-medieval period (Ellis ibid: 9).
