Fragment of copper-alloy strap-end. The split end flares, but has lost its very end together with its rivet holes. It is now a maximum of 9 mm wide, and is decorated on its front with a fine groove down either side. These grooves run down to where the strap-end becomes solid, which is marked by two or three transverse grooves which run around the front and sides, but not the reverse, of the strap-end. A short length of solid metal survives, just 5 mm wide and undecorated. the total length is 26 mm and the object weighs 1.95g. This strap-end is of Thomas's Class B, Type 1, and is simil…

Incomplete Early medieval copper alloy strap end of Thomas Class E1. What remains is the terminal end of the fitting, representing approximately one half of the original object. The upper portion of the strap fitting and flat side end with the fixing holes are missing. The remaining portion is tongue shaped in plan and semicircular in section, in that the reverse side is flat. The fitting has an integrally moulded raised and crenellated border, within which is the open work design. The design is derived from an 'inhabited plant scroll'. It shows a central 'stem' which is decorated at …

Fragment of copper alloy strap end, probably of Thomas class B1.This fragment represents the split end and upper portion of the shaft. This object is very worn and corroded and has been treated since discovery. The object is now subtriangular in plan and subrectangular in section. Both of the sheets of the wedge shaped split end survive intact, as do the two rivet holes to both sheets. One set of rivet holes are clear, whilst the opposing pair are blocked with the remains of the copper alloy rivets. One rivet may survive complete between the two sheets, but the presence of post deposi…

A copper-alloy strap end, dating to the second or third century AD. The strap end is hemispherical in section, 'fish' shaped, with its body expanding and then tapering to a point. The strap end is not symmetrical, with one side tapering to a point before the other. The attachment loop is rectangular in plan with a rectangular perforation and is worn. It is similar to an example excavated from South Shields Roman fort (Allason-Jones and Miket, 1984, 3.602, p.188-18). The strap end measures 47mm in length, 8mm in width and has a weight of 6.3g.

A copper-alloy strap end and attachment plate, dating to the second or third century AD. The strap end is flat and 'fish' shaped with a semi-circular attachment loop and piercing. A flat rectangular copper-alloy plate with a narrow attachment strip is looped through the piercing. The rectangular plate possesses a small circular perforation at the other end. The strap end measures 29mm in length and 9mm in width. The attached plate measures 28mm in length and 8mm in width. This example has implications for understanding how these strap ends were used. Bishop notes that strap ends of th…

A copper-alloy strap end dating to the second or third century AD. At one end, the strap end possesses a rectangular attachment loop with worn semi-circular perforation. This extends to a plain, flat leaf-shaped body. It measures 32mm in length, 10mm in width and is 1mm thick. The strap end weighs 0.9 grams. Bishop notes that strap ends of this type are frequently misidentified as being 'Apron' fittings. 'More than enough dating evidence exists to show that these are not found in pre-Antonine contexts and there are even some hints that they belong with horse harness, rather than the e…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy Roman strap end. This strap end is likely to be an unusual variant on the 'amphora' type, more elgonated and narrower than other examples but still retaining a basic 'amphora' shape, it measures 60mm in length and 12mm in width. The attachment end is incomplete as are the 'handles' of the 'amphora,' as their outer edges are missing due to old breaks. The rest of the strap end is worn and pitted due to corrosion, although no active corrosion can be seen now. The terminal end tapers to a small triangular knop. The front face is flat and the…

A copper alloy, two-piece strap-end. The strap end consists of a cast front plate, with the decorative terminal riveted to a sheet back plate. While the main part of the strap end is undecorated the terminal has diagonal grooves cut in it in an abstract design. This type of strap-end often has a terminal in the form of a kings head but this example looked more like a grotesque face. Two rivets could just be seen on the front of the strap end. Strap ends of this type found in London excavations (Egan & Pritchard 1991)have been dated to mid 14th to 15th centuries.

The object is strap end divider made from cast copper alloy. This type of strap end dates to the late 13th to mid 15th century. Egan and Pritchard illustrate similar examples, and classified this example as a ‘grooved aperture and acorn knop’ type, Nos. 672-675. The spacer is a forked spacer. The body of it is a ‘U’ shape in plan, whose arms are broken. The internal edge of the spacer forms a ‘V’ shape. The acorn terminal protrudes from the outer edge of the apex. The ‘cup’ of the acorn has fine low-relief parallel notches, but this is the only decoration visible …
