A Medieval copper alloy strap end, probably dating to c. 1300-1400. A composite strap end of two sheets of copper alloy, probably soldered at the terminal end.The strap end is sub-rectangualr in plan, tapering from the attachment end and terminating in an elaborated knop; this is sub-rectangular with a circular perforation on either side (one incomplete), with a semi-circular projection at the teminal. There is a single central perforation at the attachement end; the rivet is lost. One face of the strap end features incised decoration, with a central empty longitudinal field flanked by…

Copper alloy strap end. A pair of plates of thickness 1.1mm [front] and 0.4mm [back] with a forked spacer plate between them, and with an elongated knop of schematic zoomorphic form, the lines delineating its features being rendered as incised strokes. The plates are of elongated trapezoid form, and on the display side this field may formerly have been masked or plated. A rivet of diameter 1.5mm and length 4mm passes through the inner end of the plates, attaching them to each other and to the strap [lost]. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1400. Length: 39.4mm, Width: 9.4mm, Thickne…

Fragment of gilt copper-alloy object of box-like construction, traditionally interpreted as a strap-end for a scabbard but more recently interpreted as a book-clasp. Only the square-ended lower part of the socketed body survives, with the terminal which is then enlarged into a very box-like lozengiform element with traces of an elaborate quatrefoil inscribed on the top. The stepped base of the lozenge tapers and terminates in a loop with a transverse hole containing a separate oval copper alloy ring with ends butted together and soldered. A separate back-plate is soldered on the revers…

An incomplete and very worn copper alloy strap end, dating to the Early Medieval period, circa AD 750 - AD1100. The strap end is sub oval in plan and sub rectangular in cross section. At the upper edge of the strap are two semi-circular cut outs which are the remains of two small holes, which would have enabled the object to be attached to a strap. The body of the object narrows slightly to a stylised animal head at the base. The head includes a rounded snout and impressions for the eyes. Abrasion, caused by movement whilst within the plough soil, has resulted in a loss of most of th…

A Medieval copper alloy strap end, probably dating to c. AD 1250-1500. The strap end comprises of two tongue-shaped sheets of copper alloy pressed together and riveted in place, with two seperately made copper alloy rivets and the attachment end and a third at the terminal. Below this third rivet is a small, incomplete sub-circular perforation, presumably serving as a point of attachment. The strap end is undecorated. Dimensions: length 42.8mm; width 17.2mm; thickness 4.3mm; weight 5.6g. Simple copper alloy sheet strap ends are relatively common medieval finds, see for example those…

A copper alloy strap end with a large separately applied dome-headed rivet. The strap end comprises two rectangular sheet metal plates, both with the distal ends angled inwards and joined at the end by a large, projecting circular cross sectioned rivet. The rivet has a flared domed head.It is probable that this rivet was ussed to attach the strap to another element. There are traces of a white metal coating on the surface of the plates.
