A cast copper alloy Anglo-Scandinavian stirrup terminal mount, dating from the 11th century AD. The terminal is broadly zoomorphic in design; it has a wide, rounded snout or head with ear-like knops projecting at right-angles from either side of the head. The terminal has a collared and raised dome towards the open end, but other than that the terminal is undecorated, and no detail to the 'head' can be seen. The terminal has a hollow reverse creating a slot in which the iron stirrup would have fitted; there is projecting ledge near the base of this slot, probably to aid the fitting of…

A cast copper alloy Anglo-Scandinavian stirrup terminal mount, dating from the 11th century AD. The terminal is zoomorphic and depicts a snub-nosed beast with ears, eyes, snout and lobe-ended tendrils depicted cleary. The beast resembles an animal such as a boar. The terminal has a hollow reverse with a slot in which the iron stirrup would have fitted; there is some damage to the terminal around the beast's right ear, but otherwise the terminal is lightly worn and in very good condition. It can be compared to the group of stirrup terminals illustrated in Williams (1997), fig. 2b. For …

A cast copper-alloy terminal for a late Early Medieval stirrup, probably dating from the mid eleventh century. The stirrup terminal is incomplete, missing part of its base as well as part of the walls of the semi-cylindrical tube in which the stirrup would have been attached. The terminal is sub-triangular in shape and has a circular loop formed by a stylised animal head which is curled round to face up the stirrup. This decoration is augmented by abstract moulded grooves. The interior of the semi-cylindrical tube is encrusted with a lead solder which would have secured the terminal to…

A cast copper-alloy object, identified tentatively by David Williams as a foot plate from a late Early Medieval to early High Medieval stirrup. The object is slightly convexed (or concaved, depending on which way up it is held) and has a blunt knop at one end (possibly broken at the top or bottom, though it is very worn and so this is hard to determine), whilst the other end is broken. It is quite thin (approx 4 mm thick) and measures 77.56 mm long, 28.56 mm wide and weighs 40.9 grams. It has a very worn, dark green patina.

An incomplete copper-alloy stirrup-strap mount of probable 11th century date. The bottom side and apex of this sub-triangular mount are missing, having been lost in antiquity. The upper surface bears a zoomorphic design, executed in high relief, depicting a lion-like animal standing left, raising one forepaw, his head facing towards the top. The animal is generally realistic in appearance, the only exception to this being one of the hindlegs, the top of which extends directly into the upward-curving tail. The remains of two sub-circular perforations flank the head and neck of the b…

A copper-alloy stirrup terminal of probable Late Early Medieval date. The piece represents one of two original terminals from the basal points of the stirrup.

The back legs form a right angle, the surface of one having moulded vertical striations and a scalloped upper edge, giving the appearance of a leaf. The very short body is slender, the front legs apparently not portrayed. The head is overl…
