Copper alloy strap end with integral box chape. The box chape is rectangular in plan with two rivet holes at the rear. The topside is inscribed with a letters IHS with a hatched background. The neck of the chape is narrowed and leads to a flanged transverse bar that forms the base of the frame. The frame of the strap end is a long trapezoid with a cordate shaped internal aperture; the sides are slightly concave with four protruding roundels within a curvilinear line at the recesses of each side. The front of the frame has been damaged but may have held a moulded crown. In the inside o…

A copper alloy Anglo Saxon strap end c. 750 - 950 AD. This example is typical of the Thomas Type A2 Patterned. The top face is decorated with a crudely executed linear incised line border, surrounding randomly placed dot and circle motifs, typical of the age. The rear surface has a similarly scribed border line showing a pair of lines on the long section of the device. There are no apparent fixing holes but there is the hint of it being made by folding over two thin sheets of copper alloy. It is possible that the fixing holes have either been omitted or that the section has been broken…

An incomplete copper-alloy strap end of Early-Medieval date, c.AD 750-950. The strap end is of Thomas' Class A, probably Type 1, although the decoration has been highly abraded, obscuring many of the details. The strap end is sub-rectangular in shape with the longer edges tapering towards one another. It is made from a single sheet of metal folded widthways. The edges are joined for the majority of its length before splitting into a front and back plate at the attachment end. One rivet remains in each corner of the attachment end and a broken hole is present in the centre at the very e…

An incomplete copper alloy strap end of Early-Medieval date (c.AD 750-1100). The strap end seems to be a simplified derivative of Thomas' Class E, Type 3. It is tongue-shaped, and made from a single folded sheet of metal which is joined together at the edges for most of the base but splits at the attachment end into two plates. There are traces of a rib running lengthways down the centre of the front plate, although this is almost flat either through wear or manufacture, and is marked out by faintly incised lines on either side of it. The attachment end terminates in a worn irregular…

Early medieval copper alloy strap end, c. 39mm long and 8mm wide, with a weight of 1.48g. The object is sub rectangular in form and rectangular in cross section. It has a slightly damaged upper edge, which should be straight. Here it has a rectangular recessed 'back' plate, c 8 x 6mm, which would have had a correspoding one at the front to hold the strap. Below this point the object has bowed sides and is decorated for two thirds of its length with an interlace design in a raised linear border (the upper edge is missing) . Below this are two rectangular incised borders housing a cr…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. The strap end consists three elements, attached together by two circular-sectioned copper-alloy rivets (one at the upper edge of the strap end, one just above the terminal): the two outer elements are a pair of sheet-metal plates, rectangular in form but tapering towards their base. These 'sandwich' an internal forked spacer with a projecting oval terminal knop and transverse collar at its base. The strap end is preserved mostly intact, though the side plates have come away from the upper r…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy composite strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. Only the lower portion of the strap end survives, its upper section missing in an old break. The strap end is composed of three elements: two outer plates and an internal spacer held together by a circular-sectioned rivet sited in the terminal. In plan the strap end would have originally demonstrated a rectangular body, its tapering sides decoratively notched and waisted at their base prior to a projecting rectangular flattened terminal decorated with deep grooves and a transverse moulding …
