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…

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.

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…

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.

An incomplete Post-Medieval copper alloy strap fitting (belt mount), lozenge-shaped with a single integral attachment spike to the reverse, now missing its tip. The head is entirely covered to the front with moulded pellets (eight around a central pellet). The spike has a square cross-section and the break is relatively recent. The metal is rather grey in colour suggesting an alloy with tin. The object can be compared to an example illustrated in Read (2001, no. 253), dated to the second half of the 14th century, although perhaps a 15th - 16th century date is more likely, as suggested…
