Incomplete medieval crescentic strap-end, crescentic back-plate missing. It was held in position by four rivets, two of iron next to the attachment edge, and two of copper alloy. Large broken perforated foliate terminal. The engraved, cross-hatched and drilled decoration is very similar to that on an example from Abingdon (Fingerlin 1971 Abb. 314, Kat. Nr. 239), and to an incomplete piece from Quidenham (HER 37284). Extant length 47.5mm. Width 30.5mm. First half 15th century.

A mostly complete cast copper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. Formed of two separate plates secured at its upper edge and directly above the terminal by means of a single circular-sectioned copper alloy rivet (giving a total of two), it has a sub-rectangular body with gently tapering sides that terminates in a projecting floral knop. The outer face of the strap end is decorated at its upper edge by means of engraving, consisting a saltire motif followed by two transverse grooves. Despite now curving somewhat in profile due to post-depositional dam…

Copper alloy possible strap end fragment. A composite object comprising three layers, the outermost on either side bearing traces of white metal plating with a thicker central element between them. A small pointed knop or terminal projects from one end of the central element, and a pair of spurs from the opposite end. The latter might have formed a loop, or may alternatively represent the paired prongs of a stiffening element. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500.

An incomplete cast copper-alloy strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1350-1450. Only the internal forked spacer survives intact, the outer plates missing in old damage. The internal spacer demonstrates tapering triangular arms (one longer than the other) which thicken towards an open circular element, from the base of which projects an acorn-shaped terminal and dividing transverse groove. Preserved in good condition with an uneven greenish patina, it measures a maximum of 51.85mm in length, 23.66mm in diameter at the circular element of the body, and 3.17mm thick at the acorn-sh…

Copper alloy strap end. Cast zoomorphic strap end of elongated oval form with a split inner end bearing paired drilled holes for stitched attachment and a zoomorphic terminal, Thomas Class A Type 1. A curvilinear pattern, now indistinct, occupies the central part of the plate, separated from the inner 34end by a probably pelta-shaped field. At the terminal, a pair of curved ears appear in low relief, other details of the beast snout being obscured by wear. Slightly bent. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 800-850.

A complete Medieval copper-alloy strap-end (c. 1350-c. 1400). The strap-end is sub-rectangular in plan and has a small pointed knop at the terminal end. The strap-end is formed of two sheet metal plates. A circular rivet hole contains the remains of a copper-alloy rivet at the attachment end. There appears to be no rivet at the terminal end, so the plates are likely to be soldered together. The front plate has inscribed saltires forming lozenges. There is a patchy green patina but some of the surface is matt brown and light green. Length: 54.2mm; width: 14.0mm; thickness: 2.6mm; dia…

Copper alloy strap end. A wide strap end made by the joining of two rectangular plates of thickness 1.7mm and 0.7mm, and subsequently by the cutting and rubbing down of their corners and of one end to produce a near-circular form. A pair of rivets of diameter 3.5mm and maximum length c.5mm attached the plates to each other and to the strap [lost]. The surface is heavily glossed, probably by continuous contact with fabric. A dense cluster of tiny [length c.1mm] nicks or punch marks appears centrally on either side. The fixing is accomplished by riveting, a medieval trait, but the wide s…

Copper alloy strap end. Cast composite strap end, comprising a zoomorphic beast head terminal with detail economically rendered by angled cuts, and with a plain sub-triangular box chape which is closed by a separate plate of thickness 0.6mm. The chape and its closing plate were attached to each other and the strap [lost] by a rivet of diameter 2.2mm and length 3.6mm. The riveted fastening is a medieval trait, and the style of the terminal late medieval or early post-medieval. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1400-1500.

Copper alloy strap end. A weighty cast strap end with a split inner end, an expanded mid--part and tapered towards a massy solid terminal, Thomas Class F. A longitudinal panel appears on both sides, the better preserved retaining a possibly reticulated interlaced pattern within a broad plain border. The terminal features a projecting border and a rounded end, with a small triangular projection on one broad face only. The inner end bears six dots of inlay on either side, again suggesting an originally bilateral scheme of decoration. This type of strap end is linked to the Viking distrib…

A fragment from a cast copper alloy strap end of Early Medieval to Medieval date, about AD 1000 - 1200. It is probably Thomas Class I. The remaining portion consists of the zoomorphic terminal, cast in the form of an animal head, possibly a dog or dragon, with a rounded snout. The features are quite crudely defined by V shaped grooves on the top of the head. The terminal has broken away from the remainder of the strap end just behind the head. It is 2.7mm long, 7mm wide and 6.5mm thick. It weighs 4gm. Compare SWYOR-0E84D9, WMID-B21B07, NMS-45BABD and BH-598F7D and see Thomas, G., (200…

An incomplete medieval copper alloy strap end, in two peices, dating to c. AD 1200 - 1400. The strap end consists of a sub-rectangular strip of copper alloy, transversely folded at the terminal end to form a front and back-plate. The attachment end is sub-triangular, the sides of the plate beginning to converge in line with a roughly central circular perforation. One of the plates has broken shortly after the fold, with this separate fragment also missing the attachment end; this fragment was likely the front plate, and appear to have been decorated with a double stranded border of pun…
