An incomplete cast copper alloy stirrup terminal of early-medieval date. The stirrup terminal is formed from a hollow cylinder with an open attachment end that would have enabled it to attach to the now missing stirrup. Traces of iron corrosion remain within the open top. The cylinder narrows slightly and bends to form a loop which rejoins the main body of the cylinder roughly half way along its length. Further traces of iron corrosion are present around the external edge of the cure and where the loop meets the body. The metal is a mid brownish-green colour and is worn. The terminal…

A large late Saxon (Anglo-Scandinavian) stirrup-strap mount belonging to Williams Class A Type 1. The height of the mount, including the bent flange is 75.03mm. The flange is angled slightly downwards and there is a prominent tear just above it which has caused the upper part of the mount to twist to one side. This damage was probably caused during use. The design, which is characteristic of mounts of Type 1, shows two linear beasts in profile with curling crests. Between the beasts is a pair of opposed spirals and an upright lobe. Below the apex loop is a pair of parallel lines (a fi…
