An incomplete early-medieval cast copper-alloy strap-end, classified as Thomas's (2003, 2) Class A, Type 1 (Trewhiddle style), abraded and broken at the attachment end.

The plate is sub-rectangular with sides that taper gradually towards an animal head terminal. Only the lower half of the split attachment end survives, abraded and broken through at the two rivet holes; no rivets survive. The plate is unifacially decor…
