Record ID: PAS-75D66D
Object type: STRAP FITTING
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A worn and corroded copper-alloy strap-fitting of medieval date. The artefact has a sub D-shaped frame with central internal projection from its outer edge. The incurved outer edge effectively consists of a pair of semicircles which converge in this projection which terminates in a slightly expanded knob. The front of the object is bevelled slightly both externally and internally on the front; the reverse is flat. Around the bar part of a sheet plate has been retained; since it is partial the artefact can be considered incomplete, although the frame is an intact component. The plate is…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A medieval copper-alloy buckle of the 'gaping-mouth beast' type, complete with its pin (c. 12th century). This buckle is moulded in three dimensions and takes the form of a hollow, open-mouthed animal head which is integrally cast with a frame and bar. The head is sub-circular when viewed from above and a three quarters circle in cross-section. The top of the head is decorated with a central nasal ridge which bifurcates about halfway along the head to turn into ears which continue down the sides of the head to the base. Set in front of the ears are moulded elongated oval eyes which sta…

A cast copper-alloy artefact of c. 11th-century date, probably a strap-fitting. The object is a ring with a thick, slightly angular hoop and convex crude quatrefoil bezel. The quatrefoil head is perpendicular to the hoop. It is decorated with four triangular grooves arranged in saltire, but not meeting at the centre. The quatrefoil thus created has elements of slightly different sizes, one perpendicular to the hoop being quite small compared to the others. The artefact is now a red-brown colour, covered in patches of light-green corrosion product The artefact can be paralleled to a st…

A cast copper-alloy artefact of 11th-century date, probably a strap fitting. The object is a ring with a thick hoop and convex crude quatrefoil bezel, flat compared to the rest of the curved hoop. The quatrefoil head is perpendicular to the hoop. It is decorated with four triangular grooves arranged in saltire, but not meeting at the centre. The quatrefoil thus created has slightly longer elements in line with the hoop than those perpendicular to it. The terminals of each part of the quatrefoil are somewhat angled. The artefact is now a red-brown colour, covered in patches of light-gr…

Object type: HARNESS FITTING
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss; part of one of the terminal loops have been lost. The arms are semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At what would have been the centre of the complete link there is a low moulded boss with a small knop extending either side of the plate. The boss is solid. The plate terminated at each end in a loop; as noted, one is now vestigial. The other is circular and features three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-bro…

A corroded and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss, though one half of the plate beyond the boss, along with its loop, have been lost. The arm is semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At one end of this is a moulded boss extending either side of the plate. It represents a face, probably zoomorphic rather than anthropomorphic. Just protruding above the plate are a pair of pointed ears. Below the plate is the nose and the lopsided V-shaped mouth. The nose is moulded, triangular, as…

A copper-alloy pin detached from a medieval buckle described as a 'disc-on-pin' type, and classifiable as Redmayne's Type B. The pin is formed of a large central circular plate with protrusions emerging from opposing points. The first of the protrusions is the pin tip, which gradually tapers to a blunted point. The loop, opposite, is slightly recessed on the front and curves back behind the plate, but does not form a closed loop. The front of the plate is highly decorated. It is moulded, with two main wide borders, that at the circumference lower than that within it. They both surround…

A possible copper-alloy candle holder of medieval date with two cups. The object is of one piece, consisting of a stem hammered flat and bent round to form an elongated socket at one end, while the other end expands and bifurcates, developing into two arms which terminate in either cups or holders for rushlights.

An incomplete or fragmentary copper-alloy mount of probable medieval to post-medieval date. The mount is flat and has stepped long edges formed of conjoined trapezoids that decrease in size: three such trapezoids survive to form the present object. The smallest trapezoid forms the terminal of the object and is bifurcated at its own terminal. It is also covered in an applied thin white metal sheet, which extends, abraded, into the adjacent trapezoid. On the reverse, at the terminal, is an integral rivet. The object has been curved in profile, and has been bent downwards in particu…

An incomplete copper-alloy plate, presumably from a strap, of probable medieval date. The plate is broadly rectangular, rounded at the surviving corners, having been abraded, and broken at the other short end where it has been bent upwards slightly as a result of old damage.

A fragment from a post-medieval copper-alloy and iron precision instrument - pair of dividers dating to the 16th-17th century. Such dividers comprised two hinged arms; the upper section is copper alloy while the lower arms are iron; here only one upper section survives, broken at both ends. At one angled end of the fragment was where the piece hinged with the other upper section. The arms are decoratively cast so that they have a varied, faceted appearance. On the middle section of the arms this faceting has created an oval depression on the internal surface. Externally the equivalent…
