An incomplete Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian)-Medieval copper alloy stirrup-strap mount. Originally the mount would have probably been trapezoidal in plan. The surviving part is the centre of the mount only. It is moulded and decorated at the front, flat and partially concave at the rear. The front consists of the major part of a forward facing head. It has a wide nose that tapers and then flares to form nostrils with prominent eyes at the sides. Above the nose are two circular holes with other holes above those. These are part of the openwork element of the artefact. The mouth …

A cast copper alloy Anglo-Scandinavian stirrup terminal mount, dating from late Early-medieval period. The terminal is quite worn but was probably zoomorphic in form, depicting a snub-nosed beast with stylised ears, eyes and snout. The zoomorphic terminal is roughly D-shaped in section with a hollow reverse where the stirrup arms would have slotted into the terminal. This example can be compared to the group of stirrup terminals illustrated in Williams (1997), fig. 4a-c. They date roughly to the 11th century AD or possibly slightly later.

Copper alloy stirrup Mount. Williams' Class A, Type 12. Cast openwork plate of rhomboid form: a central cross or saltire is formed by the intersection of arms with low bosses at their outer ends. An apical loop with a central aperture of 2mm is blocked by ferrous corrosion (perhaps investigated with a pencil point to judge from graphite trapped in the dimple!); opposite, an angled or stepped flange also bears traces of ferrous corrosion, and perhaps a further aperture placed centrally. Suggested date: Early Medieval to Medieval, 900-1100. Length: 42.4mm, Width: 32.4mm, Thickness: 3…

Copper alloy Stirrup strap Mount. Cast sub-triangular zoomorphic mount with a flange on the back at 90 degrees to the mount itself; Williams Class A, Type 8. Three circular holes of diameter 3.4mm occur, two towards the base of the object. The decorative design is indistinct; it may include the widely reported motif of a lion like creature with jaws agape - the impression at the upper end - but might equally present a pair of creatures stretching upwards, as could be discerned on the lower part. The type is typically Anglo-Scandinavian, and the brown tint of the metal is a common feat…

A corroded and broken probable late early-medieval cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal (11th century AD). The recessed back would have enclosed one of the arms of the lower part of the stirrup (Williams 1997, 1). This hollow may contain traces of the lead solder by which the terminal appears to have been attached to the stirrup. The terminal is of a simple, trefoil design, with small lateral fleurs. The attachment end has received an old, diagonal break, extending right down to the shelf on the back, that is in line with the centre of the side fleurs. Apart from the moulding on the bac…

An incomplete cast copper alloy Medieval stirrup strap mount from the late 11th century. It is sub-triangular in shape. There is an integral loop at the top; at approximately the centre of the mount is a pair of off-centred lobes. The interior of the mount is decorated with four downward curving lines of indentations, which were most likely inlaid, now missing; the top three lines of indentations have three each, and the bottom line has four. There is some remaining red niello between the third and last line; this area appears to protrude from the mount, and may be a debased animal he…

A worn and corroded Early Medieval cast copper alloy stirrup mount, c. 1025-1100 AD. The mount has an overall symmetrical tongue shape. At one end it is square and bends away from the front face at 90 degrees to form a narrowed perpendicular flange (Type A Flange). On the front face progressing towards the other end of the mount the initial part is rectangular leading to symmetrical knops, one on either side. The rectangular segment has two equidistant circular holes placed across its width. From the knops the mount widens symmetrically in a scallop shape to two further knops, from wh…

An incomplete copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late early-medieval to medieval date (c. late 11th century AD). This sub-rectangular mount has broken in an irregular fashion above its base and before the development of the flange. Regardless, it does not readily fall into any of the sub-classifications of Williams's Class B. It is flat, with a damaged base that features a crack towards its centre. The sides taper slightly as they travel towards the apex, but the form remains broadly rectangular until the upper edge which is characterised by pronounced shoulders at the corners and…
