Copper alloy strap end. Composite strap end comprising two straight-sided plates of thickness 0.3mm with an apparently separate square plate of thickness c.1mm brazed to the outermost. This slender block bears closely-spaced if casually executed cross-hatch and has edges rounded by wear; and a tongue-like point protrudes beyond it. A rivet of diameter 1.3mm and length 3mm passes through the inner ends of both plates, to attach them to each other and to the strap. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1450. Length: 38.3mm, Width: 10.5mm, Thickness (at terminal block): 2.9mm, Weight: 3.28gms

Copper alloy strap end fragment. Cast composite strap end, resembling a 'King's Head' type. A cast trapezoid plate with integral sides tapers towards a collared terminal with a two-stage knop whose rounded end is lightly nicked, to resemble a perfunctorily modelled cushion-crowned head. The other side of the terminal has features added to the lower part of the terminal to make a face of it: crudely incised triangular eyes with drilled dot pupils, and lines descending from the sides of the nose to flank a curved slit mouth. Another plate has been lost, though two rivets of diameter 2mm…

A complete cast copper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1350-1450. The strap end is composed of three elements: two outer plates and an internal forked spacer connected by means of two circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivets (which survive in situ). Each plate demonstrates a slightly tapering rectangular upper section, which abruptly waists to form a devolved cruciform/fleur de lis shaped terminal-a rivet is sited respectively in the apex of the plate and at the midpoint of the terminal. The front face of the strap-end demonstrates incised decoration in the fo…

A medieval (1250-1450) copper alloy composite strap-end, with a front and back plate and a forked spacer between. The strap-end is parallel sided with a trefoil knop at the closed end. The spacer plate is c.3/4 of the length of the front and back plates, from the trefoil knop and stopping short of the open end. The space between the front and back plates here contains organic matter, probably from the original strap. Traces of a single rivet are evident at the centre of both ends. The metal has a greenish-blue patina and pitted surface. The object measures 36.3mm in length, 9.9mm in ma…
