Copper alloy strap end fragment. A cast straight-sided plate with a split end bearing a single rivet of diameter 2.1mm and length 2.5mm in a drilled hole to attach the plates to the strap [lost], cf. Thomas Class E type 4, of Borre style. The plate bears a bordered panel of interlace comprising roughly symmetrical loops and strands, with grouped bars at the base of the design, possibly appended to an anthropomorphic design. A slightly thickened transverse rib separates this decoration from the [now] plain surface bearing the rivet. A green surface patina has been lost [to probably rec…

Copper alloy strap end. A composite strap end comprising two nearly straight-sided plates of sheet metal of thickness 0.6mm with expanded rounded outer ends, and a cast forked spacer plate with a matching expansion at its outer end and a stylised acorn knop between them. A rivet of diameter 2mm passed through the inner ends of the plates, which are slightly concave. The object is now held together by thread. One of the plates has a most attractive bright green patina, the other is dark like the spacer. The finder kindly cites SF-71F5A3 as a parallel. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350…

An incomplete copper-alloy strap end dating to the Late Medieval period (c. AD 1400-1500). The strap end is made of two thin, flat sub-rectangular, tongue-shaped, plates joined together at one of the broken ends by a surviving copper-alloy circular-sectioned attachment rivet and the remains of two other probable circular-sectioned iron rivets above this. The edges and terminals of both plates are damaged and/or missing. There is a thin layer of organic material between the two plates. Both plates have incised decoration. The more complete plate has a representation of what appears to …

An incomplete copper-ally Roman strap end, possibly late Roman amphora-shaped. There is a rivet hole on each side at the attachment end where the leather strap would have fitted, and a tiny knop at the pointed end being the remains of an decoration. A similar object is PUBLIC 4FEB76 also found in Lincolnshire, although the actual shape of the decoration may have been different. For similar artefacts see Bishop and Coulston (1993, 175; no. 12) and Appels and Laycock (2007, 250-252; no. SL13.12). The form is associated with material culture of the late 4th century and early post-Roman p…

A complete but distorted coppper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is rectangular in plan although bent at an angle of about 45 degrees c. 2/3 of the way up its total length as a result of old damage. Tapering slightly along its length towards a projecting tri-lobed terminal, the two plates which make up both sides of the object are attached at their upper edge by a single circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivet and just above the terminal by a second. The front of the strap end is decorated along its sides with rocker-arm engraving, flanking a cen…
