An incomplete cast copper alloy Early Medieval stirrup terminal of the Anglo-Scandinavian period dating to the 11th Century, or possibly slightly later. The zoomorphic terminal is roughly D-shaped in section with a hollow reverse where the stirrup arms would have slotted into the terminal. The terminal depicts a beast's head in Ringerike art style having a pronounced open snout, elongated eyes and rounded ears. One of the small spurs projecting downwards from beneath the eyes is missing, otherwise the stirrup terminal is worn but in good condition. This stirrup terminal can be compair…

A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The mount is sub-pentagonal and bears an elaborate relief-moulded pattern. At the apex is a heavily stylised zoomorphic head, whose pointed-oval eyes are defined by grooves. This head bifurcates at the base, the gap being occupied by a possible second such head, also with a 'V-shaped' base. Each of the two vertical sides is occupied by a downward-facing beast, the heads of which project below the horizontal base. The bodies of these animals are sinuous in appearance. One leg of each animal is clearly portrayed; above…

County: Milton Keynes
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The vertical portion of the artefact consists of an openwork lozenge in which a central saltire divides four lozenge-shaped holes. At the centre of the upper surface is a circular moulding; seven further such mouldings are equally spaced around the mount, including one at each of the two outer points. At the top the lozenge extends into the rounded apex loop with circular perforation. At the base is a right-angled flange which projects backwards and is covered in iron corrosion, presumably from a corroded rivet. The …

A copper alloy fragment from an Early Medieval stirrup-strap mount. It is the base part of a Williams Type 11A sub-triangular mount, the rest is missing due to old breaks. The base has a shallow flange on the reverse which projects at right angles. It has two perforations for rivets for attachment. Part of the rivets remain in situ, within a patch of iron corrosion, also on the reverse. On the front face there is a narrow frame of c.4mm, enclosing the depiction of a lion facing left, with a raised front paw and tail curled forward and upward over its back. (The head and mane are missi…

An incomplete cast copper alloy stirrup strap mount of later Early Medieval, Anglo-Scandinavian date (1000-1100 AD). The stirrup strap mount is sub-triangular in plan with a slightly convex (domed) front and a concave rear face. The central design is pierced and the edges of the mount are slightly bevelled. At the apex of the mount is a broken sub-quatrefoil shape with a depression in the centre of each foil. The topmost foil looks to form the initial part of a loop for attachment but the mount has fractured across this point. On the reverse of the lower edge is a prominent integral c…

A Late Saxon stirrup-strap mount of Williams 1997 Class A Type 6. The lower fixing holes are iron-filled and there is the remains of an iron strap on the reverse. The apex terminal is not pierced by a fixing hole, but a casting flaw (blind hole) on the reverse may be the reason why the (iron-filled) fixing hole was placed further down. See ibid. fig. 29 no. 105. It measures 51.5 x 34mm and dates from the 11th century.

An Early Medieval copper alloy stirrup terminal, with a trefoil shape. The terminal is hollow-backed with a U-shaped profile in which traces of lead can be seen. This would have been the solder used to attach the terminal to the lower stirrup arm and foot plate. The outer face of the terminal has a devolved zoomorphic shape, with the animal 'face' reduced to triangular shapes outlined by incised lines within the trefoil. The two outward-turning 'eyes' lie in the foils to either side, and an elongated triangular 'nose' extends along the central foil. There is a collar above the trefoil…

A Late Saxon trapezoidal stirrup-strap mount measuring 42mm x 32-7mm. There are two iron-filled fixing holes in the upper corners, two more in the angled flange, and traces of an iron strap on the reverse of the latter. The cast openwork ornament is imperfect, two of four small circular apertures in the centre being blocked and all four larger surrounding apertures being misshapen. The engraved decoration consists of a corner-to-corner saltire in a frame of lines along the sides and base. There is no suggestion of any zoomorphic element in the decoration. It may be ascribed to William…

A Late Saxon copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount. The artefact is incomplete, only the upper half surviving. The remaining portion suggests that it would probably have originally been sub-rectangular in plan, although there is a slight narrowing towards the point of the break. At the centre of the upper surface is a zoomorphic head, executed in high-relief. A raised moulding with concave vertical sides represents the brow and nose of the animal. Either side of nose is a pointed-oval eye. The ears are large, rounded and each has a circular aperture extending through it. Between the ear…

An Early Medieval wrought iron stirrup of Seaby and Woodfield's Type 2cii. The 'bow' (the arch over the foot) is of D-shaped or triangular cross-section, with a curved arch at the top and tall upright sides which run down to prominent solid knobs or bosses above expanded decorative sideplates. The tread runs across at right angles between the top of the sideplates, and may have been made separately from the bow. One of the sideplates has seven round-headed studs or rivets visible, with very slight hints of similar bosses on the other plate; the sideplates of stirrups are often decorate…
