Medieval tongue-shaped strap end comprising two flat pieces of copper alloy sheet secured by a rivet near the trefoil knop and another near the straight attachment edge.The upper half of the front sheet is engraved with arocker-arm saltire which extends between the sides. Length and width 40 and 11mm. It is interesting that this mode of construction, with two rivets, flat sheets, with neither solder, bent sides nor side strips, is frequently recorded in Norfolk but does not occur within the large number of strap ends from London recorded by Egan and Pritchard (1991, 124-61). 14th century.

A complete Early medieval strap end of Thomas' Class B, type 1, probably dating to c. AD 750-1100. The strap end tapers from the sub-rectangular attachment towards a debased zoomorphic terminal, the junctures between the attachment end, shaft and terminal all deliniated by finely incised transverse collars. The expanded area of the attachment end is decorated with three rows of three ring-and-dot punches, with two rivet holes above the decorated area, both retaining an iron rivet in situ. The detail of the zoomorphic terminal is obscured by abrasion, but it can be seen to be elongated,…

A much abraded cast copper alloy zoomorphic terminalled strap end of later early medieval (later Anglo-Saxon) date, late 9th Century, and probably of Thomas type A. The strap end is broadly rectangular. The top edge of the rectangle appears to have been broken off at an angle of about 20 degrees. The long sides taper slightly and terminate in a blunted point. The front of the strap end in profile is slightly domed and it tapers gradually towards the edges. There are unclear zoomorphic markings on the front. The strap end is cast as a solid piece. The back of it is flat with no clear markings.

An incomplete medieval copper strap end plate dating to the period (c. AD 1250-1400). The strap end is made from a single sheet of copper alloy that has been folded equally in two; a rounded section at the fold indicates where the plate would have fitted around the buckle frame. The plate is rectangular in plan and open-ended. Three round headed rivets are extant at the corners of the plate and these would have secured the plate to a leather or textile strap. The central rivet and one rivet at the corner furthest from the fold are missing. At the corner with the missing rivet a small s…

A cast lead strap end of early-medieval date. Description: The strap end is tongue-shaped with a rounded terminal and a straight edge at the attachment end. The attachment end is split to allow a strap to fit inside but the two sides are now squashed together. There are two rivet holes at the attachment end, each with a lead rivet still in-situ. The ends of the rivets have been flattened on the front of the strap end to secure them. On the back, the ends of the rivets are missing and just the two, circular rivet holes can be seen. Below the rivets, across the width of the front of t…

An iincomplete cast copper-alloy strap end dating to the Medieval period, c. 1250-1400. It is rectangular in plan and rather elongated, tapering at its base to form a rather devolved cruciform terminal. The upper section of one plate is missing in an old break, but otherwise it is preserved intact, the two plates secured together at both its upper edge and base by means of two circular-sectioned rivets. Preserved in rather poor condition with a coarse greenish patina, it measures 64.71mm in length, 8.47mm wide by 3.28mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 7.67g. An identical strap end h…

An incomplete cast copper-alloy probable 'Winchester style' strap end (Thomas Class E) of later Early Medieval (10th - 11th century) date. The strap end is incomplete and the upper part (which would have fitted to the strap) is lost. The damage appears to be old as the breaks are either corroded or patinated. Originally the strap end would have been rectangular (tongue shaped) with a rounded base and riveted attachment plate; what remains is the decorated body of the plate. The body is pierced with a high relief chip carved debased vine or vegetal scroll formed by a S shaped central fi…
