Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A sheet copper alloy strap end of late medieval to early post-medieval date. The rectangular strap end measures 27.3mm by 22.6mm by 3.8mm and weighs 2.89g. It has been formed from a folded sheet, which is decorated on one side with stamped motifs (some are arguably conjoined). These are in the form of a line of cording, along the seam, and two lines of beading, which flank a blackletter 'legend'. This appears to comprise solely minims. There are two iron rivets close to the open end. This accessory appears to be analogous to the 'Blossoms-Inn' site assemblage from London and may even h…

Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper alloy and silver strap end of early-medieval date. The strap end measures 51.5mm by 11mm by 3.6mm at its widest points and weighs 7g. One end is zoomorphic, moulded to represent a beast's head seen from above and etched detail to represent its ears. The other end is split in order to hold the leather strap. There is another engraved motive at this end which comprises a semi-circle with three short lines inside which form a triangle. Seven silver rivets pierce the strap end, three in pairs and one (that closest to the 'head' end) on its own. There is also a small portion of si…

Object type: SEAL MATRIX
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A well-preserved cast copper alloy seal matrix of medieval date. The vesica-shaped (oval with pointed ends) seal matrix measures 30.9mm by 19.3mm by 3.2mm and weighs 10.03g. The legend begins with a 6-pointed star and reads S' WILL' IEIL'IO.h'IS or IEIL'IO.K'IS. Mary Siraut (Editor, Victoria County History of Somerset) has suggested that the dot divides the first name from the surname. The first part would therefore be an attempt at William, and the surname something like Harris, Herries, Kerris or similar. In the centre there is a fleur-de-lis, the vertical 'branch' filled with parall…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small plain double-looped oval buckle, cast in copper alloy. The buckle measures 23.3mm in length, 19.1mm in width, it is 3.7mm thick and weighs 3.17g. It is not quite symmetrical. The front of the buckle is convex and the back is flat. The central bar is slightly narrowed and the pin is missing. This simple style of buckle was used right through the Middle Ages and into the post-medieval period, so it is not possible to give it a more precise date (Cuddeford 1996, p. 20).
