A fine cast copper-alloy probably Early-Medieval buckle plate, dating to the 8th-9th centuries. Description: The plate is sub-rectangular in plan with concave edges. The front plate drops down to a flange at the attachment end. There are three rivet holes at the frame end of the buckle plate, below the extended arms which would have gripped the buckle frame's pin bar. Judging by the shape of this buckle, the pin would have been separate from the buckle, which is unusual for this period. The plate is quite substantial for its small size and appears to be formed by a single piece of hol…

Copper alloy buckle with integral box chape. The box chape is rectangular in plan with two rivet holes at the rear. The topside is inscribed with a letter M (presumably for Mary) with a crosshatched background. The neck of the chape is narrowed and leads to a flanged transverse bar that is an equal width to the chape. The bar is decorated with two transverse and recessed lines and has a circular hole in the middle that holds the copper alloy pin. The frame of the buckle is a long trapezoid with a cordate shaped internal aperture; the sides are slightly concave with four protruding rou…

A cast copper-alloy buckle with integral plate of late early-medieval date (c. 10th-11th century). The frame is a slightly asymmetrical, elongated D shape with a possibly zoomorphic protrusion at the outer edge. The plate is slightly narrowed as it meets the frame, but widens slightly and gradually towards the attachment end, by which point it is approximately the same width as the frame. Adjacent to the frame is a perforation around which the pin would have been looped; the pin is now missing. Towards the terminal is a rivet hole in which the corroded remains of the iron rivet are st…

Copper alloy D-shape buckle that has a complex moulded frame. The front of the buckle is expanded to form a sub-triangular panel that has a moulded animal head on the top with hollowed circular ears, lentoid eyes below and a triangular snout forming the forward edge. Flanking this and forming the curving sides of the buckle is an arching beast on each side that face back towards the strap bar. The neck of each beast emanates from the side of the first facemask and is decorated with two recessed lines that run halfway down its length to the head. Behind the head and on the outside edge …

An incomplete copper alloy shoe or knee buckle, with its central bar and pin missing dating to the post-medieval period (c. AD 1660-1720). The top and bottom edges are incurved, and decorated with three transverse mouldings. The outside edges are outcurved, with some relief decoration around grooved pin rests. One of the pin rests has iron corrosion, suggesting an iron pin. There are also traces of a separate iron bar around which the pin was hinged. It measures 25.5 mm in length, is 16.6 mm wide, 3.0 mm thick, and weighs 3.2g. Similar buckles can be seen in Whitehead 1996, 98-9, dat…

A late early-medieval/ early medieval (c.1050-1150) copper alloy gilded zoomorphic buckle frame in the Urnes style, incomplete in so far as it is missing its pin. The buckle frame is D-shaped with a narrowed bar (to the upper surface) and gilding on the top edge of the frame only. The underside of the outside edge is very shallowly concave and the base of the strap bar is at the same height as it. The upper surface has moulded decoration, non-symmetrical, in the form of an animal, curved around to hold one end of the bar in its mouth with its tail across the opposite end. A possible ad…

A copper-alloy sub-oval buckle frame dating from the 11th or 12th century. The outer edge and sides sub-triangular in cross-section; the latter develop into moulded devolved animal heads at each end of the bar (beast biting bar type). The bevelled front of the outer edge is decorated with engraved lines, transverse towards the centre, tending towards oblique on the sides. The bar is narrower than the frame and is recessed. The pin is missing but there is a groove to act as a pin rest. Iron corrosion product on both surfaces at the end of one of the sides, around the animal head, is cu…

A medieval copper-alloy buckle of the 'gaping-mouth beast' type, complete with its pin (c. 12th century). This buckle is moulded in three dimensions and takes the form of a hollow, open-mouthed animal head which is integrally cast with a frame and bar. The head is sub-circular when viewed from above and a three quarters circle in cross-section. The top of the head is decorated with a central nasal ridge which bifurcates about halfway along the head to turn into ears which continue down the sides of the head to the base. Set in front of the ears are moulded elongated oval eyes which sta…

An incomplete copper-alloy medieval buckle plate probably dating from the late 12th to 13th century (c. 1150-1300). The frame is missing, being broken at the hinge loops, while two of the prong-like extensions at the attachment end of the plate are vestigial, and a third has broken through at its attachment hole. The front part of the plate, closest to the hinge end, is rectangular. As implied, the plate then divides into three bars extending towards the attachment end outlining two openwork shapes in the plate. As noted, two of these narrow bars are now broken close to the plate but …

A copper-alloy medieval single-looped oval frame dating to c. 1250-1400. On its outer edge there are two shallow, angled knops flanking three transverse grooves; the example can be classified as being of Meols type 8. The bar is narrowed, recessed and offset. The pin is missing; the central groove on the outer edge would have acted as a pin rest. The buckle measures 14.02 mm in length, 15.20 mm in width and weighs 0.87 g. A similar example can be found in Whitehead (2003, 22) no. 92.

A copper-alloy medieval single-looped trapezoidal buckle dating to the period c. 1350-1500. The bar is narrowed and the pin is complete.

Cast copper alloy, Medieval (c. 1390-1420). Socket from a buckle of 'lyre' type, the only traces of the open frame being present. The socket is trapezoid and separated from the frame by a transverse groove. Its face bears what appears to be a pseudo-black letter inscription. Through the socket are two rivets which secured it to the belt. Buckles of this form were found at Meols, (Griffiths et al 2007, 102-103, Pl. 17, No 765) which was assigned to the Late Medieval period. Marshall, however, (1986, 11-12) was, on basis of depictions on monumental brasses, able to suggest a closer date …
