A fragment of a cooper alloy, gilded circular mount or belt slide c. 570 - 650 AD. The mount is decorated with elongated, symmetrical intertwined bodies in ribbon form with no pretence of naturalism, typical of the Salin II phase. The incised depiction is further enhanced with a gold coloured infill. The back of the object has two remaining studs in situ and there is a further 'hole' were a third stud may have been located. That hole is in symmetry with the two studs, such that there were probably four studs in total. The surface has a light green-brown patina. See similar at ESS-806BCA. .

Copper alloy mount. An E-shaped sheet metal plate with a central U-shaped tab projecting from one long side, flanked by narrower straight-sided and round-ended projections, each with a drilled hole of diameter 1.2mm at its end. These members also have rounded lower ends defined by light nicks. Six short vertical ribs appear along the apex of the larger tab, rising from a horizontal line. These details do not appear on the reverse, so the object is unlikely to have been pressed or stamped. The 'E-form' recalls the expanded terminal of an early Anglo-Saxon girdle hanger, which was an it…

Copper alloy and ?glass possible mount. A small plano-convex disc with three oval white [i.e. colourless] glass stones of lengths 2.6-3.3mm embedded in a pale powdery material on its convex side. Each stone appears to surmount an individual boss, and one may have been lost from a more symmetrical arrangement than is now apparent. A pair of adjacent rounded nicks on the edge might relate to attachment - there are no other potential fixing points save for the flat back - or perhaps to the dismantling of a setting. The stones have a slight purple tint, so, rather than glass, these might …

An incomplete copper-alloy mount or strap fitting of Medieval date, c.AD 1200-1500. The mount is an elongated lozenge shape with a worn break at the narrowest point. Traces of decoration can be seen on the surface, although they are very worn.

One bead is still visible, slightly inset from the apex of the lozenge. Possible traces of a beaded border are visible along the edges adjacent to this bead. In t…
