An incomplete copper-alloy post-medieval (1600-1700) strap fitting or dress hook, probably from a sword belt or baldrick. The tag would have had a separate back plate and looped attachment, both now missing. The hook is missing its tip. The plate is circular, domed with three longitudinal facets and hollow to the reverse. One end has a circular attachment-knop with central in situ iron rivet (2.8mm diameter) and smaller finial knop, extending from a transverse rib. From the opposite end extends a solid transverse ridge with a 4.1mm diameter copper alloy rivet head to the reverse, holdi…

A Post-Medieval copper alloy strap fitting, probably part of a sword belt, probably dating to AD 1500-1700. The fitting consists of a sub-rectangular plate, with an indented upper edge and tapering into a rearward facing blunt hook; this retains a separate copper alloy loop. The plate is perforated twice on the longitudinal median line, both retaining iron corrosion from probable iron rivets. Incised lines define a transverse collar surmounting the hook. Dimensions: length 32.5mm; width 13.7mm; thickness 2.9mm; diameter of loop 11.8mm; weight 5g. cf. Margeson (1993: 39, no. 258), B…

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…

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 cast copper-alloy artefact of c. 11th-century date, probably a strap-fitting. The object is a ring with a thick, slightly angular hoop and convex crude quatrefoil bezel. The quatrefoil head is perpendicular to the hoop. It is decorated with four triangular grooves arranged in saltire, but not meeting at the centre. The quatrefoil thus created has elements of slightly different sizes, one perpendicular to the hoop being quite small compared to the others. The artefact is now a red-brown colour, covered in patches of light-green corrosion product The artefact can be paralleled to a st…

An unusual Carolingian-style copper-alloy strap slide probably dating to c.800 - c.1000. It is cast in one piece, in the shape of a plain rectangular loop which is now slightly bent with one long side expanded into a hollow and domed decorative rectangular plate. This is convex with a hollow back and has deeply carved symmetrical zoommorphic decoration. At each end is an open mouthed beast with a snout and eye indentation either side facing outwards. Between the heads is a girth ridge flanked by a row of sub-circular indentations (six on each side). The frame of the loop is D-shaped i…

A copper alloy strap slide dating to c.1150 to 1400. The slider consists of a single, trapezoidal loop with upwards curved upper edges. There are a pair of opposed internal triangular projections about a quarter of the way up the sides of the frame. The sides of the frame are rectangular in section apart from the longer upper edge which has a rounded top. Reference: Egan and Pritchard (1991: 234) illustrate a number of similar examples, including ref. 1265 which they assign to a late 12th to late 14th century date. They note that the type with internal projections are thought to be the…
