An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object would have consisted of a central circular plate with boss from which four arms would have emerged, one at each cardinal point; one arm has been lost completely, while another arm now only has a vestigial loop. Integral with the central circle is a high domed boss which is hollow backed. The arms are semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. The surviving loops are oval and bevelled externally. They feature three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-b…

A corroded and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (11th century AD).

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire East
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy medieval strap-end possibly AD 750-1100 with zoomorphic decoration. The object is probably one half of a two-part piece, the other plate that was once attached by the pins, one of which is still present in part, having been lost in the soil. The strap-end is lanceolate and divided into three sections, each of which has a distinct enclosed decoration. the tip appears to be a compressed zoomorphic head, and is pierced through slightly to the left of centre. the middle section resembles a top-down view of a crawling insect or beetle, though this is possibly due to corrosio…
