Object type: DRESS FASTENER (DRESS)
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gilded copper alloy chain mail armour hook, broken into two pieces. When complete, this would have been an S-shaped object in plan, with circular terminals, one of a pair which together would have formed a hinged lyre-shaped fitting (see M.120). The smaller fragment consists of one terminal. The rest of the object is complete. The front surface appears to have been gilded, and shows moulded decoration. There is a raised moulded band running down the centre of the S-shape, with a hatched central line. On either side of this ridge is a line of punched circular motifs. On the circular te…

Object type: DRESS FASTENER (DRESS)
Broad period: IRON AGE
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy object of probable late Iron Age to Roman date. It is currently unclear exactly what this artefact was used for, but there is a possibility that it is either a dress fastener or a terret ring. The article consists of a semi-circular loop. At a right angle to the loop, at its flat sided rear there is a projection with a T shaped gap in the rear, presumably for attachment. The top of this projection is also semi-circular and has faint remains of incised decoration. There is also a circular indentation in the centre of the projection. No parallels for this object have yet b…
