An incomplete copper-alloy object of Early Anglo-Saxon date, possibly a strap or belt fitting. Both ends are incompete due to old breaks. At one (attachment?) end there are the remains of three evenly spaced oval shaped lugs. The central of these three lugs survives intact and has a single oval aperture that demonstrates signs of use wear, the lugs to either side missing their outer edges due to old breaks. The front face of the plate is deeply recessed, creating prominent raised borders along the attachment(?) end and both sides, the border at the terminal(?) end curving to a central …

An oval copper-alloy object, probably a strap-slide of late Anglo-Saxon date. The object is flattish, and incomplete on a small part of the circumference due to old breaks. It is also slightly curved, to give a convex appearance on the outside. There is a raised rib of metal running along the long axis, approximately 1.75mm in thickness and 4.65mm in width. The metal of the rib has a reddish tinge and is decorated with eight separate ring-and-dot motifs. These also cover the entire front surface in a haphazard way. The rib turns at right angles at the edge of the disc, and projects be…

A complete early Anglo-Saxon mount, made from copper alloy and partly gilded. It is roughly square, measuring 16.71mm by 18.29mm in size and 1.83mm in thickness. The front is divided into two panels, a U-shaped chip-carved and gilded panel and above this a T-shaped undecorated panel. The gilded panel depicts two beasts with simple double-strand bodies and no legs, which interlace in three simple twists. The large heads have open mouths arranged vertically in the opposing uprights of the U shape. The outer edges of the U-shaped panel have small notches cut into them to create a bea…

An incomplete copper-alloy ‘socketed hook’. This object consists of an openwork circular-sectioned socket, expanded on the front into a convex, roughly oval plate which on other examples is more distinctly cross-shaped. A strut extends from the front and back, and the struts converge to meet at a solid conical terminal which tapers into what was originally a hook or loop but which is now incomplete. The front strut has a scalloped outline which on other examples is sometimes engraved with a fish-like motif. The rear strut is straight-edged and rectangular in cross-section. It me…

A square gilt bronze strap fitting with chip-carved zoomorphic ornament of unusual detail and quality on one square face. The reverse shows four bronze rivets, which are c.2mm in diameter and extend 2.5mm from the back of the plate, on three of which are preserved washers some 6mm in diameter and 0.8mm in thickness. These are intended to secure the mount to a lost leather or wooden receiving material, probably a leather strap. The rivets are arranged in a square grouping, each being inset equally from one of the corners of the mount. The chip-carved face has an outer frame 1mm broad, …

A complete cast silver shoe-shaped stud. This stud is 27.34mm in length and 14.60mm at its widest point (its rounded end). Studs such as this example are called 'shoe-shaped' as they are characteristically rounded at one end and pointed at the other, and there is a pair of opposing crescent shaped notches in between the rounded and pointed terminals (set slightly closer to the rounded end) which makes them look a little like a footprint. The front face has a slightly raised border, and within this there are tiny irregularly placed ring-and-dot motifs. If there was originally anything …

A very interesting incomplete cast-in-one copper-alloy strap fitting, 30mm in length and 14mm in width. It consists of a rounded hollow terminal with a rectangular projection from one face; there would have originally have been two parallel projections but one is now missing due to an old break. The rounded hollow terminal has a vertical circular hole through its centre which is filled with corroded iron, as is the underside of the terminal. This object is decorated with ring-and-dot to form two faces, one on either face. These faces consist of two ring and dot eyes and a projecti…

An incomplete copper alloy mount. This mount consists of a central part, which is circular in plan, measuring 18mm in diameter, the front face of which projects in a triangular shape, which is 7mm in height, and is decorated with grooves radiating downwards from its tip. The back face is concave and undecorated. There were probably originally four protrusions projecting from this central part, three of them are still complete. The protrusions form evenly spaced opposing pairs, they are 8mm in length, 5mm in width and taper to a point. They appear to be small animal heads, the fron…
