Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper-alloy probable 'Winchester style' strap end (Thomas Class E) of later Early Medieval (10th - 11th century) date.

An incomplete cast copper artefact of unknown function most probably of post medieval date (AD 1600-1800).
