KB3 Cast copper-alloy stirrup terminal. Early medieval, c. 11th C AD. Mass: 11.7g; length: 36.8mm; width: 13.4mm; depth: 11.7mm. C shaped in section, with a hollow reverse which would have enclosed an angled arm of the lower part of the stirrup. Zoomorphic, with a ribbed and grooved collar at the top. The terminal retains lead solder in the reverse. In “Stirrup Terminals”, Williams (1997, p.2) dates these objects to a period centring on the second half of the 11th century.

Copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of Williams 1997 Class B, Type 4, with a surface of corroded and very purple metal, which appears to have been stripped, although the detail of the cast mask is quite sharp and well defined, there is a perforation at the apex with the corroded remains of an iron rivet. There is also a fixing hole in an obliquely angled flange with the remains of a corroded iron rivet and a fragment of back-plate on reverse. The mask is closest to no.460, however it is better defined and more elaborate with (unusual) perforated eyes. Width 26mm. Length 43mm. 11th century.

Cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount, Length 23mm, width 28mm, thickness 8mm weight 11.72g. The artefact would have been rectangular but the top half is missing, the remaining section consists of an animal facemask in the centre flanked by two holes. At the base is a rearward facing flange that has two rivet holes, these are both encrusted in iron corrosion. Similar examples are illustrated in Williams, 1995, pages 4-5 and are classified as Group B mounts that date to the dates to the 11th century.

Cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount, circa 11th - early 12th century. Incomplete. Length: 36.8mm; width: 26.5mm; thickness: 4.3mm; mass: 11.2g. In plan, the mount is sub-triangular with gently curved (convex) sides and breaks across the bottom. The stirrip-strap mount has an incomplete trilobed apex, with the remains of a circular fixing hole in the upper lobe. The sub-triangular shape identifies this as a Class A mount using the classification system introduced by Williams in: "Late Saxon Stirrup-Strap Mounts: A Classification and Catalogue", 1997, p.2. The front of the mount is dec…

A fragment of the copper alloy casing for the iron side of a late Saxon stirrup of composite construction. One original end survives and this may be the lower end. The casing has a series of equally-space deep diagonal U-section grooves which give a 'cabled' appearance. Within the hollow back of the casing is the remains of a lead sodler for attachment to the iron arm. Both long edges are chamfered to taper into the iron arm. The width of the hollow is 6.54mm.

A stirrup-strap mount of Williams Class A, Type 4. The mount has an iron rivet at its apex and this has, unusually, been covered with a separate copper alloy dome. Two iron rivets survive at the base and that on the left shows signs of having been similarly covered. The mount has an oval body which is framed by a pair of ribbon-form beasts whose tails curl into spirals which flank the pointed lobe above the apex rivet. The head ends of the two beasts curl around the lower rivets and terminate in well-modelled open-jawed heads of late Viking inspiration with pointed oval eyes, pointed …

A late Saxon stirrup mount, dating to the earlier half of the 11th century. Similar to the Vintry mount, David Williams categorises this type of stirrup mount as Class A Type 6, "a squat, broad shouldered mount with zoomorphic apex terminal" (complete) with "two snake-like beasts forming the outer margins of the mount" (Williams 1997). A tree-like shape extends up through the middle of the mount and appears to have five branches coming off the main stem. The type of flange is categorised as a common right angle flange (Williams 1997). The holes at the base are corroded closed with iron…

Cast copper alloy Early-Medieval openwork stirrup-strap mount. The mount is roughly lozenge shaped with a flat bottom and a circular loop at the apex. This loop appears to have been pierced, but is now filled with dirt and erosion. The main body of the mount has four lozenge shaped holes, arranged to create a diagonal cross in the centre. Williams (1997, pp.69-75) has categorised such mounts as class A, type 12. Similar examples may be seen in his work 'Late Saxon Stirrup-Strap Mounts', particularly numbers 312 -333 (ibid.pp.71-75). These typically have a series of raised bosses in th…

A copper alloy stirrup terminal, dating to the 11th century. The terminal is semi-circular in cross-section with a flat base. The front of the mount has a moulded zoomorphic decoration depicting a beast's head with bulging elongated eyes, prominent ears and large rounded nostrils. The reverse of the mount is covered with a whiteish lead solder. This mount was discovered circa 40 yards from LIN-67F924 which was probably its partner. The mount is closest to the example illustrated in Williams's FRG Datasheet 24, Fig. 2.
