An Anglo-Scandinavian stirrup-strap mount of Williams Class C. It is somewhat larger than those seen in classes A and B, but lacks the openwork decoration seen in most mounts of Class C. However, as Class C mounts are quite uncommon, this simply adds a further type to the group. In common with other mounts of Class C, this example has a pair of side-plates located near to the bottom, angled at approximately 80 degrees from the plate. It does not have the reverse projecting flange at the bottom normally seen on these artefacts. The mount is broad and squat, measuring 45.9 mm wide and 4…

Cast copper alloy Ealy medieval stirrup strap mount. Williams Class B, Type 3, Group 9, dating to the 11th century. The mount is sub-triangular in plan, with a circular extension at the apex. This would originally have had a circular hole in the centre through which a rivet would have gone to secure the mount. The remains of the rivet appear to have corroded onto this and so the loop appears solid. It has raised decoration on the front and is plain on the reverse. It has one central motif which consists of a forwards facing animal head, possibly a deer. This is set on a raised boss and…

A worn copper-alloy stirrup terminal of late Anglo-Saxon/Anglo-Scandinavian date. The terminal is in the form of a stylised animal or beast with a hollow, semi-cylindrical attachment end that would have enabled attachment to the now missing stirrup. This is open at the top, has traces of a white substance perhaps used to solder the terminal to the stirrup, and is closed at the base with a projecting semi-circular lip. From beneath the lip projects the stylised animal head, which curves forward to face back up the terminal. This creates a large circular aperture at the centre of the ter…
