The fastener takes the form of a sub-circular plate with two holes for attachement to the garment, and a thin shank with hooked end projecting from the opposing side.

Object type: BRIDLE BIT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL

The plate is faintly decorated in what is probably Jelling Style, with a curled beast apparently consuming its own tail. This was a common dec…

The head is of truncated-globular, or sub-polyhedral form, with a ring-and-dot punchmark occupying each facet. A single collar separates the head from the remains of the circular-sectioned shaft. These pins are well attested to the Middle Saxon period, c. AD 720-850.

Object type: CROTAL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy one-piece crotal bell of post-medieval date. The crotal bell has a girth-seam which is decorative rather then indicative of a two-piece casting. Much of the bottom half of the bell is broken and missing. There does not appear to be any decoration on either the upper or lower half of this crotal bell. These attributes suggest a 17th or 18th century AD date.
