A copper alloy Anglo Saxon strap end c. 750 - 950 AD. This example is typical of the Thomas Type A2 Patterned.

A fragment of a cooper alloy, gilded circular mount or belt slide c. 570 - 650 AD. The mount is decorated with elongated, symmetrical intertwined bodies in ribbon form with no pretence of naturalism, typical of the Salin II phase. The incised depiction is further enhanced with a gold coloured infill. The back of the object has two remaining studs in situ and there is a further 'hole' were a third stud may have been located.

An incomplete copper alloy strap end of Early-Medieval date (c.AD 750-1100). The strap end seems to be a simplified derivative of Thomas' Class E, Type 3.

There are traces of a rib running lengthways down the centre of the front plate, although this is almost flat either through wear or manufacture, and is marked out by faintly incised lines on either side of it. The attachment end terminates in a worn irregular…
