An incomplete cast copper-alloy bar mount dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. The mount takes the form of a central domed boss with a single band of hatched decoration, from the upper and lower edges of which project two smaller domed bosses with small circular apertures at their midpoint that denote the original location of separate copper-alloy rivets which would have attached it to a strap or belt. Only one of these now remains in situ, the other missing. Preserved in good condition with an even greenish patina, it measures 17.92mm in length, 10.21mm wide at its widest poin…

Copper alloy mount. Cast plate resembling a phallic form viewed one way, though perhaps a heart-shaped figure with the lower part extended and the cleft filled, and with a pair of integrally cast prongs of length 7mm on the back, both oriented in the same direction. Another similar mount was recorded along with this one, and the finder credibly suggests they may both come from the same discarded strap. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1650. Length: 17.2mm, Width: 9.6mm, Thickness (clear of prongs): 1.7mm, Weight: 1.34gms

An incomplete copper alloy probable mount of unknown exact date, though could fall between the Roman and Post Medieval periods (c. AD 43-1900). The mount is in the form of a stylised fish with forked tail and head pointing upwards and the body curved. A curled fin extends from the head towards the tail and the possible remains of a second fin can be seen on the opposite side of the head. Some detail on the face and body of the fish remains though it is very worn. The style of the object is very similar to Roman depictions of dolphin. However, there is currently still a degree of debat…

An incomplete post-medieval cast copper alloy belt mount dating to the 17th century. Description: There were two iron rivets; the one in the narrow end is in situ, surrunded by corrosion; whereas the historical break is through the broader end rivet hole, the rivet is missing. The upper surface is convex in profile, and conical in plan, with the sides gently narrowing. The broader end is bulbous and greenish in colour, with two gutters transecting the surface, dividing it into three segments, ending at the narrower end in a knop. It appears to be otherwise undecorated. The concave und…

A cast copper alloy strap fitting of probable Roman date. The mount is kite-shaped in plan with semi-circular recesses at either short corner and elongated recesses at either long end. There are two crudely executed deep parallel linear incisions down the centre of the length of the mount and around the outside edges. The reverse of the mount has a mass of iron corrosion protruding from the centre, preseumably the remains of an iron shank. No direct comparison could be found for this object however it shares similarities with belt / harness mounts of Roman date.
