Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Nottinghamshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy fragmentary object, probably part of a flat buckle frame of later Early Medieval date, probably AD 900 - 1000. It is decorated with Borre style interlace and has a V shaped recess which could be a pin rest. The object is crescent shaped and broken at the ends. It is presumed to be the expanded outer edge from a buckle frame. The V shaped notch is in the centre of the inner edge so would be in the correct position for a pin rest. The design on each side is not symetrical. There is a bar in relief across the pointed end of the V, and a double curved line (probably chip…

Solid copper-alloy object in the shape of a horse's head, probably a terminal from a knife handle. It has a base 15mm long and sub-oval or sub-rectangular in cross-section. This is apparently complete, and has a groove around it just above the lower edge, perhaps to help fix it into a hole in a larger object. At the other end, it tapers into the narrower neck of the horse, which is more rounded in cross-section. Above this is a very stylised head, with a slightly open mouth. The nose is bevelled to either side in the centre, with the corners left unbevelled as nostrils and another …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy single loop spur buckle dating to c.1250-1450.
