County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Medieval cast copper alloy composite strap end. It appears to possibly be zoomorphic but is too worn to determine any other decoration. It is mostly flat but the end of the object is rounded in profile. It retains only the bottom part of the strap end and what maybe the beginnings of the forked spacer. The object is overall very worn and is covered in green patina. The reverse is flat and is more worn than the front. It is believed to date from the Medieval period, circa 1150-1400. Similar objects may be found in Egan and Pritchard (1991) pg. 141, fig. 651, 652. Simila…

A copper alloy Medieval strap end which is anthropomorphic in the form of a king with a crowned head. It has a cast front plate and sheet back plate. The front plate is 14.96mm wide at the attachment edge and tapers to an anthropomorphic terminal. The terminal depicts the bust of a male wearing a crown, with well defined moulded and incised facial features, especially on the reverse where the base of the crown, the hair and the collar are especially clear. On the body of the strap end are diagonal incised lines, perhaps representing drapery. The reverse is recessed to take the shee…

An incomplete cast copper alloy strap end of early-medieval date. The strap end is of Thomas' Class A with zoomorphic terminal thought the degree of wear makes ascribing an exact Type difficult. The strap end is a pointed oval in shape with a zoomorphic terminal at the closed end and an irregular worn break at the opposite end. The zoomorphic terminal is in the form of a crude forward facing animal head with recesses for the eyes and a snub snout. A triangular recess behind the eyes bears traces of silvering. The rest of the strap end is extremely worn and any decoration has been rend…

Copper alloy strap end, tongue-shaped with a small finial at the closed end. It was made from two leaves of sheet metal secured by two rivets, one tight at the closed tip, the other more open at the bifurcation. These rivets have a diameter of 2.0mm. In London strap ends of this type were found in contexts dating between 1270 and 1400 (Egan and Pritchard 1991, Nos 609-11).

Fragment of the lower part of a strap end terminating in a cross motif. The object was formed from three leaves of sheet copper alloy one of which is represented only by a fragment in the area of the cross-shaped terminal. One of the surviving leaves represents a spacer between the two outer leaves. This spacer is marked by a tapering transverse slot which extends halfway across its width. No sign of a rivet survives and the strapend haveing been truncated with the loss of its upper section. In London strap ends of this type were found in contexts dating from the 1350-1400 (Egan and P…

Cast copper alloy strap end, generally triangular, bifurcated with a single rivet. At its end is a terminal in the form of a pointed loop. This is separated from the main body of the strap end by two lip-like mouldings. This object is difficult to parallel but resembles a series of looped strap ends which, however, are now thought to be from book-straps (Egan and Pritchard 1991, Fig 101). Ringed strap ends ends are charactorised by being hinged, a feature absent from this find. The London strap ends were found in contexts dating from 1350-1450.

A cast copper-alloy object which is very similar to Medieval buckle plates, but which is probably a book fitting or strap end.

The openwork front plate is decorated with a moulded lion with three legs on the ground, facing left with its head facing forwards. There are two rivets in the left end of the plate, one in each corner, and a further rivet hole in the trefoil terminal. The front plate is gilded. The…

A fragment of a Roman copper-alloy amphora-shaped strap-end. The body is flat and triangular with bevelled edges and decoration on one face. In the wider end there is a slit to allow a strap to be attached; a slight seam down either side may indicate that it was either cast in this shape, or hammered together leaving a split attachment end. The attachment end is bevelled along most of its length, but has a slight boss at either corner. A single copper alloy rivet remains in place in the centre of the wider end, by which the strap would have been secured. The surface decoration, alt…
