Record ID: BERK-06C0C1
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast copper-alloy suspension loop or belt hanger dating to the medieval period. A long bar terminates in a heavily stylised zoomorphic head, which has a pronounced snout and deeply-grooved mouth. Behind this head is a panel of cross-hatching. The bar extends vertically downwards into a basal loop (now broken) which is probably the hole through which the belt passed. Several examples of this category of artefact are recorded on the PAS datbase - see, for example, NMS-1EEA45, NMS-D99313 and IOW-7A0A93, BH-4A9D88 and LIN-8FAF62. There is also an unprovenanced example in the London Muse…

Record ID: BERK-068FB7
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy strap fitting or belt decoration of probable Roman date. The fitting is roughly circular in plan, with the thickness of the corcle narrowing to the outside of the loop and teminating with two expanded collars, possibly imitating some penannular brooches. The appearance of the fitting is of a crescent with rounded and joined points. It is unclear whether there was an opposing, symmetrical half to the mount but there does appear to be a break so it could be possible. On the reverse of the fitting is one integrally cast square sectioned shank, to attach the fitting to the strap.

Record ID: BERK-05EAE1
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy strap fitting or possible buckle plate dating to the Early-medieval (Anglo-Saxon) period. In its current form the strap fitting is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and has moulded Style I decoration, comprising elements of intertwined beasts. There are two or three openwork elements to the fitting. The reverse is flat, plain and undecorated. An object of similar form and decoration is illustrated in West et al. (1998:250 fig. 132.1) and is identifed as a buckle plate, as it retains two loops for the buckle bar. This is also not symmetrical and appears to be a…

Record ID: BERK-059CC2
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: West Berkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy strap fitting or belt decoration dating to the early-medieval (Anglo-Saxon) period. The strap fitting is rectangular in plan and has an integrally cast shank on the reverse that would have secured the fitting to a strap. The face of the strap fitting is decorated with an beast in Salin's Style II, an animal with elongated body and possibly a head turned to look over its back. This strap fitting is likely to date to the 6th century AD.
