A worn and incomplete cast copper-alloy zoomorphic stirrup terminal of Early-Medieval/Anglo-Scandinavian date. It is sub-oval in plan and moulded in the form of a stylised animal or beast. The terminal has an incomplete and hollow U-shaped back face that terminates in old breaks. This contains traces of a white solder that would have enabled attachment to the iron arm of the stirrup. From the base of the terminal projects the stylised beast, which has a long neck that curves round to face back up the stirrup, creating a circular aperture. Four flattened and rounded crests run from the…

A corroded and incomplete cast copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of late early-medieval date (11th century AD). It belongs to Williams's Class A and can be classified as a Type 7 mount (Williams 1997, 45-47). The mount is pear-shaped. The apex loop and flange have both been lost; the object has broken at perforations, all weak points (a number of published mounts have also lost their loops). The object is flat, with moulded decoration on its uppermost surface depicting a tree-like device, formed of inverted 'V' shapes. This is within a raised border formed of a pair of sinuous snake-li…
