Object type: STIRRUP
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A broken and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow channel running along the reverse of the object would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end has been broken off. Below, there is a bulbous moulding which thins in a step as it travels down at an angle before narrowing into a rounded tip. Beyond the step the front of the head is decorated with a V-shaped engraved line, its point e…

Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A cast copper-alloy buckle with integral plate of late early-medieval date (c. 10th-11th century). The frame is a slightly asymmetrical, elongated D shape with a possibly zoomorphic protrusion at the outer edge. The plate is slightly narrowed as it meets the frame, but widens slightly and gradually towards the attachment end, by which point it is approximately the same width as the frame. Adjacent to the frame is a perforation around which the pin would have been looped; the pin is now missing. Towards the terminal is a rivet hole in which the corroded remains of the iron rivet are st…

Object type: SCABBARD
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A broken and incomplete copper-alloy scabbard chape of medieval date, missing its side arms which would have been connected to each other via a perforated terminal loop. The fitting is zoomorphic, representing a winged animal in profile, probably a bird, whose head is at the arm end of the base plate. It was formed from a single plate that has been folded in half. The animal's tail is at the bend. The ends of the plate have been riveted together and are in the shape of the animal's head; the rivet survives and appears to have been made of a different alloy. There is a sub-triangular p…

A broken and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss; to one side the arm and its terminal loop has been lost. The arms are D-shaped in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At what would have been the centre of the complete link there is a low oval boss which is hollow on the reverse. The complete arm terminates in a circular loop that features three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-brown colour with some small patches of light-green corrosion product.

A cast copper-alloy fragment probably part of the sheath from the side of a late early-medieval stirrup, or possibly part from the upper end of a stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The curved hollow reverse would have enclosed the sides of the stirrup's iron frame; it retains possible traces of a lead-alloy solder. The fragment is U shaped in cross-section. A slightly wider element is delineated by two transverse ridges. Beyond one of the ridges the object is vestigial. At the other end it continues, similarly cruved in profile, tapering slightly before having been broken as a re…

A late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). This hollow contains traces of the lead solder by which the terminal was attached to the stirrup. The terminal appears to be of a simple, highly devolved zoomorphic design. The upper attachment end is seemingly abraded, though the extent of the losses it has suffered is not clear. Below, the head is moulded, with a central area defined by bevelled sides which flatten out at their edges. Retained between…

A fragment from a late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (c. 11th century AD). The hollow back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). The flat base is abraded on all sides and the recess above appears to contain iron corrosion product. The terminal is zoomorphic and rendered in three dimensions, representing a beast's head with a snub-nose with flaring nostrils. Around the nose are tendril-like moulded lip lappets with tight curls at their tips. The tendrils enclose a V-shaped incision which would have continued into t…

A complete copper-alloy strap distributor, bent to one side at one end (c. 10th-11th century). It is formed of two opposing strap loops, broadly triangular, with external recessed strap bars, which are connected by a central moulded animal head. The animal is viewed en face and is cat like, with small, slightly pointed ears, and two converging curved ridges which form both the eyebrows and nose; they do not meet. In profile the animal head can be seen to have gaping jaws. Emerging from the jaws, mirrored behind each ear, is an outcurving tendril. These have bevelled sides. On the fro…

A copper-alloy sub-oval buckle frame dating from the 11th or 12th century. The outer edge and sides sub-triangular in cross-section; the latter develop into moulded devolved animal heads at each end of the bar (beast biting bar type). The bevelled front of the outer edge is decorated with engraved lines, transverse towards the centre, tending towards oblique on the sides. The bar is narrower than the frame and is recessed. The pin is missing but there is a groove to act as a pin rest. Iron corrosion product on both surfaces at the end of one of the sides, around the animal head, is cu…

A worn and corroded copper-alloy strap-fitting of medieval date. The artefact has a sub D-shaped frame with central internal projection from its outer edge. The incurved outer edge effectively consists of a pair of semicircles which converge in this projection which terminates in a slightly expanded knob. The front of the object is bevelled slightly both externally and internally on the front; the reverse is flat. Around the bar part of a sheet plate has been retained; since it is partial the artefact can be considered incomplete, although the frame is an intact component. The plate is…
