Early medieval gilded cast copper alloy brooch with remains of iron pin fastening on the reverse. Dating from the 8th century, the mount is in fair condition with some gilding, now rather flakey, still present in the crevices of the chip-carved decoration. While the brooch appears to be lozenge-shaped this is likely to be a result of damage to its edges and it it probable that it was circular. A plain cross divides the decorated face into four equal fields, each containing a panel of deeply cut, non-zoomorphic interlace. In the centre is a circular, plain area, through which is an iro…

Copper-alloy brooch with enamel and gilding. Circular, with an enamel design resembling a seven pointed star - or a six pointed star with a thick stalk - on its raised pedestal, which is of thickness 2.9mm, and detached from a separate back plate of thickness 1.2mm, which retains gilding, and which may have had a series of projecting lugs.

Cast copper alloy openwork mount with Ringerike style decoration. Identified as probably part of a cheek piece from a bridle by Dr Naomi Payne (confirmed by Dr Kevin Leahy). The mount is irregular in shape and incomplete. Both faces are flat. The front face is decorated with Ringerike-style engraved lines around several openings. It is possible that the curving, tapering element along one side (around the largest opening) is the neck and head of an animal. The design iprobably contains one or more animals but, as the mount is incomplete and quite worn, it is hard to distinguish more p…

An incomplete cast copper alloy object, probably a chatelaine fragment of Early Medieval date. The object is long with slightly convex sides (so a long oval in side view), has a circular cross-section and bears incised decoration. The object consists of a flattened rectangular suspension loop projecting from one end with a slightly raised circumferential collar where it meets the body of the object. From this point the body swells towards the centre before tapering again towards the base where a broken and worn knop-like projection is present. It is likely this lower element, when …

Cast copper alloy swivel or strap fitting dating from the early medieval period, that is the 11th or 12th century. The fitting appears complete but very worn. It is composed of two halves which are identical. They are mounted on an internal rivet and rotate freely, as can be seen in the finder's images taken from different angles. The cross-section of both segments is circular at the bottom/in the centre, but they each terminate in a small animal or possibly quadruped which sits on the apex of each half. The surfaces of both halves are extremely worn but some of the moulded decoration…

A pair of incomplete copper alloy strap loop fittings dating to the medieval period. The mounts are stylistically very similar and may have come from the same mould and as they were found in close proximity likely came from the same belt. The fittings have different decorative attributes and are therefore described separately. Mount A) An animal's head and snout, with upturned lip, is set horizontally with a slightly raised head. The snout narrows and a small area appears to have been damaged through use, as this is the section that would have fitted into the loop to secure the fit…

An incomplete copper alloy buckle plate of 9th-century date. It is made from a single thin sheet of copper alloy, which tapers from a wider to a narrower end. Both ends are incomplete. At the wider end there are two sub-rectangular projections with a rectilinear slot in between; this may be the remains of two hinge loops to attach the plate to a frame. At the other end are two incomplete circular rivet holes. Between the rivet holes is an engraved sub-triangular shape, two sides concave and the other convex, which may be related to the 'fan-shaped' motifs found on 9th-century strap-en…
