A complete copper alloy medieval strap end dating from c.1400-1450. The strap end is worn at the terminal end, and is possibly a two piece, or a one piece with a split. The strap end is rectangular in shape, widening towards the attachment end. The attachment end has a circular rivet in each corner, which was probably iron due to the corrosion surrounding the hole. The rivets run through to the back plate, however the middle of each rivet is now worn and missing. In the centre of the attachment edge is a semi circular indentation, with a raised ridge either side projecting out. Runnin…

A complete copper alloy late Early Medieval strap end with split attachment end, possibly dating to c.10th to the 11th century. The strap end is rectangular in shape and flares out to two circular shapes with moulded decoration at the termimal end, creating aV shaped collar above. There are also two half circles on the terminal edge, these could either be spirals, or zoomorphic eyes. Between the two circular shapes on the outside edge the strap end is worn, it is possible that this is a worn break. The attachment end is squared off, and has a central circular rivet hole with a copper …

A Medieval copper-alloy strap-end. The object is comprised of two damaged, sub-rectangular plates, the upper of which is decorated with an incised design. Central to this design is a fleur-de-lis, executed in a serrated groove, with rocker-arm grooves filling the fields above and flanking the central stem. A plain field surrounds the central design, its outer limits defined by a groove whose curvature mirrors that of the lis. Beyond this, an indistinguishable pattern of grooves extends to the surviving limits of the plate. A rivet with domed head is located at the centre of the lis…

An incomplete copper-alloy strap-end, probably dating from the Middle to Late Early-Medieval periods. The attachment end has been lost in antiquity, leaving the body and basal terminal, both of which are of flat section. The body has scalloped edges and gradually narrows towards the bottom. A number of eliptical indentations decorate the body's upper surface, creating the impression of fur. The right- and left-hand sides of the terminal have a slight outward bow and converge towards the flat base. Two horizontal grooves divide the upper surface of the terminal into three bands.

A copper-alloy strap-end, probably dating from the Medieval period. The strap-end resembles a human arm and is probably incomplete. The widest point is at the top, where the underside is hollow and there is an in situ copper-alloy rivet at the base, which would have served to attached the now-missing back plate. The shallow depth of the hollow strap slot strongly suggests that the strap-end would originally have extended to a greater height. The base of the strap slot extends into the body of the strap-end, on one side there being an inward step at this junction, on the other a smooth …

Part of a copper alloy medieval strap end. The object now consists of a crescent shaped plate with pairs of six diagonal lines cut into it enclosed by a single line. The gilding survives in this decoration. There are four rivet holes roughly equally spaced around the crescent. There are traces of iron corrosion in one hole so the rivets may have been iron. At the outer edge of the widest point of the crescent there is a break. Complete examples of this type of 15th century strap end have a decorative protrusion in the form of a trefoil or a leaf. There would have been a circular back…

This may have been intended to give it a better grip on the belt.[The photo may be upside down!]

A copper-alloy strap-end of probable medieval date. The strap-end consists of two joined elements. The upper piece has a plain trapezoidal plate at the top and a zoomorphic head terminal at the bottom below in incurved waist. The top side of the plate is horizontal and the long sides are also straight, converging towards the bottom, where they extend into the waist. The detail on the zoomorphic head below is executed in high relief, with a series of oblique ridges and grooves in the upper surface representing the ears, eyes and nostrils. The second piece of the strap-end consists of a…

An incomplete early medieval cast copper alloy strap end belonging to Thomas' Class A, type 2. Approximately 60% present, what is liekly to have been a zoomorphic terminal is missing. The strap end tapers slightly towards the straight, split end and two closely set rivet holes for attachment. The rivets remain in place and are square and raised on the front, but circular and set flush against the surface on the back. On the body is a rectangular panel containing a multi-strand cross-hatched pattern and some (probably) chip carved cresent shapes along the border. Neillo appears to i…

A cast copper-alloy late Roman - early Saxon 'amphora-shaped' strap end. This example is complete apart from the lower point. The attachment end has a chip carved edge with a single rivet hole through it and then narrows into the neck of the 'amphora' with chip carved handles. There is another rivet hole between the handles. The main body of the 'amphora' then flares outwards with downwards sloping shoulders, and would have tapered to a point. The front face is decorated with three lines of punched diagonal dashes that outline and bisect the strap end. The four ring and dot motifs are …

An early medieval copper alloy strap end. The sub rectangular plate that fitted the end to the belt has two rivets one above the other. Below this the strap end narrows abruptly into a simply deliniated animal head. This is in the form of a deeply cut chevron and a moulded triangle. The elongated teardrop shaped terminal could be interpreted as the animal's tongue. This object is similar to Thomas Class B strap end but for the fact that it does not appear to have the usual bifurcated strap fitting or the two rivets in line rather than one above the other. Perhaps this is a slightly la…

A copper alloy medieval strap end, of Thomas's Class I. The strap end has an elongated terminal in the form of an animal head (possibly a wolf) with an elongated rounded snout. The top of the snout has a carved lozenge shape on the upper surface and the eyes are moulded as two ridges on each side of the head. Above this is a faceted area with curved edges and a groove behind on each side, marking the ears. A waisted area behind the animal terminal widens to the rectangular upper section, now incomplete.
