A pair of cast silver buckle loops, found in close association with each other, dating to the late 5th -6th centuries. Description: Both buckles are D-shaped with a narrowed offset bar for the tongues, now missing. The faces of each buckle are heavily finished and bevelled, leaving them faceted on their outer edges and smooth on the inner surfaces. The smaller of the two buckles (b) is smoother and faceting less obvious than buckle (a). Some iron corrosion is present on both buckles' strap bars, likely due to the attachment of the now missing buckle tongues, a common feature of…

A fragment from a copper-alloy single-looped oval buckle frame (c. 14th century). It consists of half of the outer edge and the side which extends from it. It has an enlarged outer edge which is flat; this narrows gradually as it curves and develops into the side. The outer edge had a transverse groove at its centre which acted as a pin rest. The frame has broken at this weak point where the outer edge is thinned. Although the buckle was presumably snapped when it broke the breaks are now smooth. A field is delineated on the front of the frame by an engraved border which follows the e…

A broken and incomplete late medieval copper-alloy double-looped buckle frame (c. 15th century). It was formed of two oval-shaped loops, though one is now broken through its sides resulting in the loss of the outer edge. The extent outer edge has three moulded lobes separated by two indentations; it is also angled out in a curve. No decoration is visible on the lobes, but their effect is a castellated one. This design is typically associated with medieval rectangular frames, as illustrated by Egan and Pritchard (1991, 98, fig. 62, no. 443). The sides are bevelled both internally and e…

Small cast copper-alloy buckle frame with integral triangular plate. The flat triangular plate is undecorated, and ends in a circular terminal. The other two corners, near the frame, each have an outcurved edge forming a slight lobe just beyond them. There are remains of an iron pin, now missing, in a pin hole in the centre of the short edge of the triangle. The frame is oval, and has a D-shaped cross-section which is flat on the reverse and which swells slightly towards the centre of the outside edge where there is more iron corrosion from the pin.

A copper alloy medieval annular buckle. The frame is an undecorated circular cast ring, D-shaped in cross-section and 21.8mm in diameter. It has no pin constriction, and appears relatively flat and flimsy. The pin is made from a strip of thin copper alloy sheet, 3.9mm wide,and 0.6mm thick. One end is wrapped around the frame allowing it to move freely around its circumference, and the other end has been crimped (bent by pushing the long sides together) to produce a C-shaped cross-section which tapers to the break. and a rough point. There is possibly quite a bit missing from the end o…

A pin slot and frame recesses have been cut to form two hinge loops. Three copper alloy rivets attach the two halves of t…

Incomplete sheet copper alloy rectangular buckle plate, broken at the end which attached to the buckle frame, now missing. The plate has a pin slot at this broken end, a rectangular aperture which accommodated the loop of the pin so it could revolve around the pin bar. There are no frame recesses. The opposite, complete end of the plate (the attachment end) has two smaller rivet holes, one in each corner, and a larger rivet still held in its hole in the centre of this end of the plate. The rivet was made of iron but has mostly corroded into a larger area of iron oxide on the upper …
