Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL

A medieval copper alloy strap end dating to the 14th century. The object is formed of a single sheet of copper alloy which has been folded widthways.

A medieval iron candle holder dating AD 1270-1400. The object consists of a single cup, formed by folding a rectangular iron sheet with rounded ends to create a cylinder.
