Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy object of post-medieval date but of uncertain function. It is similar to some rotary keys of the period, so this fragment would represent the broken bow and part shank however the shank has no sign of a bit and it has been intentionally pointed / sharpened. The bow would probably have consisted of a pair of loops with inner scroll decoration. It is attached to the shank with a 'baluster' moulding, ending with an abrupt edge to the shank. The sharpness of the shank suggests that this is intentional and purposeful - the object may be an awl or possibly a (…

A copper alloy Anglo Saxon strap end c. 750 - 950 AD. This example is typical of the Thomas Type A2 Patterned.
