Object type: STRAP END
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unusual and hard-to-date strap-end made from copper alloy. The attachment end is broken off, and the strap-end now consists only of one sheet 27.5 mm long, decorated on one face with five ring-and-dot motifs, tapering from 9 mm wide at the broken end to 8 mm wide at the narrower end which has two curved cut-outs at the corners. Off centre, between the ring-and-dot at the narrow end and its neighbour, is a small copper-alloy rivet which cuts through the ring. This strap-end is certainly post-Roman, and may be early Anglo-Saxon; it is not middle or late Anglo-Saxon, but may be medieval.

Fragment of a copper-alloy item, possibly a strap end. The object is sub-retangular and 31 mm in length. It is 10 mm wide. One end appears to be a deliberate terminal of the item whilst the other end has been broken. 2 mm below the terminal is a circular hole, 3 mm in diameter. At the broken end there is evidence of a similar hole, although the break has occurred mid way across its diameter. The item is undecorated on both of its sides. It is difficult to place a date on such a fragmentary item.

Cast copper-alloy two-piece strap-end. Narrow, tongue-shaped with rounded end. Edges and surface very badly damaged and pitted. Two copper-alloy rivets intact arranged vertically, securing plate at top. Traces of a further rivet hole. This object is difficult to date positively, due to its poor condition with the loss of much of its surface and therefore, also possibly diagnostic decoration.

A copper-alloy cast strap end. The strap end has a split opening for the strap. The remains of an iron rivet passes through the strap end at this point. The strap end terminates in two globular balls (each approximately 6.2 mm thick), each on a stem which projects from the flat body of the strap end. The strap end measures 21.25 mm long, 23.27 mm wide (at its terminal) and 2 mm thick. No parallel has yet been found for this strap end, and its date is therefore still uncertain. The globular balls may have facilitated the object's use as an attachment toggle of some sort.

Buckle or strap end; initially kindly identified as the latter by John Creighton. Length; 34mm, Max Width: 22mm, Weight: 4.2gms. Helen Geake kindly comments as follows: 'Do you think this one might be a medieval buckle? Comparanda might include SUSS-3F54B8, HAMP-90E1F4 and KENT-BB04B2'. This reporter would find it invidious to favour one of these authorities over the other, and so a correspondingly broader date range is advanced than hitherto,

Copper alloy Possible Strap End, as identified by the finder. Sheet metal, cut to an elongated oval shape; now split at its narrower end. This object is reminiscent of the form of Middle Saxon strap ends, but might equally be a component of a composite version in sheet metal from any later period. Suggested date: Unknown, 750-1500. Length: 25.4mm, Width: 10.6mm, Thickness: 0.7mm, Weight: 0.66gms.

A cast copper-alloy strap end of uncertain date. It is triangular in form and section with large split attachment end that has two circular rivet holes retaining the corroded remains of iron rivets. The plate narrows to the tip, which is thickened and separated from the plate by a transverse groove. Both faces have a dark green patina that is worn and corroded in places making it uncertain as to whether there were originally any additional decorative elements. It measures 36.31mm in length, 19.05mm in width, 7.47mm in thickness and 9.93g in weight. This is a strap end with split at…

A cast copper-alloy object of uncertain function, but possibly a looped strap end or possibly a dress fastener. An alternative function might be a cosmetic aticle, although this seems more unlikely. The object is waisted in the centre, tapering from 10.5 mm wide to 4.2 mm at one end. This end terminates in a knop. Just above the waist there is an incised horizontal line and after this line the object is also decorated with three barely visible vertical lines running down towards the knop. The other end of the object is folded over to form a loop, although whether it was originally d…

An incomplete cast copper alloy object of uncertain function and date but possibly a strap end of medieval to modern date. The object is formed from two strips of tapering rectangular metal both with a rectangular cross section. At the narrower end on piece of metal is worn and broken and the other bends back on itself. The metal is a light brownish-green colour and is worn. The object is 48.1mm long, 5.8mm wide, 2.9mm thick and weighs 4g. Due to the lack of contextual evidence and any diagnostic features it is not possible to identify or date this find any more closely.

A copper-alloy cast strap end (probably). The strap end has a split opening for the strap. There is a circular perforation on each part of the split end for a rivet. The strap end terminates in two globular balls (each approximately 7.5 mm thick), each on a stem which projects from the flat body of the strap end. The strap end measures 27.49 mm long, 20.34 mm wide (at its terminal) and 5.27 mm thick. No published parallel has yet been found for this strap end, and its date is therefore still uncertain. However, a very similar object is recorded on this database as NARC-F0E7E6. The…

A cast copper alloy object, possibly an Anglo-Saxon strap end dating to the Early Medieval period. The strap end is sub-triangular in plan and consists of a moulded decorative end, which could be zoomorphic, with an elongated snout and protruding eyes; following the moulded end, there is a narrowed 'neck' and two sets of symmetrically-positioned protruding knops at either side, possibly indicating legs or feet. The rest of the strap end is flat and sub-rectangular in plan, with a circular rivet hole positioned centrally. There is no further decoration or inlay and the metal is of an e…

A copper alloy sheet fitting, possibly a strap end or plate for a folding strap clasp, of Medieval or possibly Early Medieval date. The piece is formed of a sub-rectangular strip of copper alloy, just starting to bend back on itself at one end where it would have been wrapped round the bar of the clasp frame, or folded round the strap. At the other end is a single central copper alloy rivet. The sheet has a grey green patina. It is 15.7mm long, 11.8mm wide and 2.4mm thick across the rivet. 0.84g. SOM-564945 is a broadly similar object and notes that Egan and Pritchard (1993:159) …
