Object type: BUTTON AND LOOP FASTENER
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete cast copper-alloy late Iron Age or Roman copper-alloy button and fastener which appears to fall outside Wild's (1970) classification. Button and loop fasteners are believed to have been used to hold together two pieces of fabric, or leather. The loop/shank was sown to the fabric base and the head was probably inserted through a slit or loop in another section of fabric. The number of button and loop fasteners found on military sites implies that they were items of military equipment (Wild 1970, 145-146). This example has a flat but very slightly rounded heart-shaped he…
