A complete Late Early-Medieval (Anglo-Scandinavian) anthropomorphic mount in the form of a human male mask facing forwards (c. 1000 - c. 1100). The mount is sub-triangular in plan. It is moulded and convex at the front and largely concave at the rear. The hair is represented by curls either side of a central lobe at the top. The eyes are roughly almond shaped but one is more rounded then the other and they are not symmetrical. The nose is small and triangular and is a continuation of the eyebrows. The mouth is defined by a short horizontal groove. A striking feature of the mask is th…

A complete copper alloy early medieval stirrup terminal of zoomorphic form dating from c. AD 1050 - 1100. The terminal is subrectangular in plan and semi-circular in section. The terminal is in the form of an elongated animal head; at the top are two large moulded ears, both of which are crescentric. Below these are two large oval eyes, leading into an upturned snout. A semi-circular knop extends from the snout on either side, perhaps representing teeth or a jowel. A while material - possilbly lead - is visible on the concave reverse. The terminal has a reddish patina. C.f. Williams …

A copper-alloy Stirrup Terminal Mount of Early Medieval date (AD 1000-1100). The object is semi-circular in plan, with one edge contained moulded decoration, that creates the form of a serrated edge of 3 lobes and a groove defining each. The lower edge of the object is concave a projects at 90 degrees along one edge, terminating in an abraded break. This could have accommodated an iron stirrup footplate. In the centre of the object is a single, circular perforation. On the upper edge of the projection is an incised inverted Y shaped groove, on both sides of the object. This gives a zoo…

A fragment of cast heavily worn copper-alloy object, possibly a Stirrup Side Terminal dating to the 11th century. Description: The object survives as a short length of linear concavo-convex element, probably forming a half tube. At one end appears to be a raised collar. The patination is very bright and subsequently the objec tis a bright turquoise colour.. Measurements: 20.13mm long, 15.65mm wide 13.74mm thick and 9.19g in weight. Discussion: This may be an Early-Medieval stirrup terminal and of Anglo-Scandinavian manufacture with influences from the Ringerike and Urnes styles (Wil…

Incomplete Early medieval copper alloy stirrup-strap mount of Williams Class A, type 12, probably dating c. AD 1000-1100. The stirrup-strap mount consists of a lozenge shaped plate from the base of which projects a rectangular angled flange, at c. 30 degrees to the plane. This has two circular perforations, both blocked by iron corrosion products. The plate is decorated with four openwork lozenges, arranged to create a reserved saltire with a raised, circular boss at the centre and the terminal of each arm. Although now abraded, further, sm,aller knops were probably cast at the corners…

An incomplete copper-alloy Early Medieval stirrup terminal, dating to AD 1050-1100. It consists of a semi-cylindrical socket which has the outer face shaped with a zoomorphic motif. The edges of the socket are damaged and probably it would have had a circular cross-section enclosing completely the oblique arm of the stirrup. The stepped shape of the base of the socket was made to accomodate the stirrup corner where the oblique arm joins the foot plate. The inner faces of the socket have traces of the soldering. From the base of the outer face of the terminal an integral crested animal …

Early medieval copper alloy stirrup terminal (Anglo-Scandinavian 1000-1100) Length: 25 mm, width: 12 mm, thickness: 12 mm, weight: 11.89 g. The object is rectangular in form and triangular in cross section. It has a rectangular hollow on its lower side which contains traces of lead solder (used to apply to the stirrup). The object is in the form of a beast with a projecting snout and large flared nostrils. When viewed from above its 'nose' is pointing outwards and its snout has a large incised chevron filling it. Behind that is a prominent bulging rounded brow line, though no obvious …

Fragment of a cast copper alloy Early Medieval stirrup-strap mount, Williams' Class A, Type 8, sub-triangular in plan, with an intact iron rivet at the lobed terminal and openwork decoration which is incomplete at the broken opposite edge which would have expanded into a mount with a right-angled flange at the base with two more rivets. The shape of the terminal appears to be zoomorphic, a stag's head with antlers around the openwork circles on either side of a domed forehead above two recessed eye sockets. The eye sockets are 3 mm in diameter and the antlers around circles that are 5 …

Copper alloy and lead object, kindly identified by Alex Bliss as a stirrup side terminal of 11th century date and probable Anglo-Scandinavian attribution. A small concavo-convex cast object of copper alloy, forming half a tube of wall thickness c.1.1mm, with a dense white filling in its concave side. Viewed in profile, the convex side is gently humped at one end, with a pair of angled ridges meeting between the hump and a rounded end. Abraded. The appearance is of a simple zoomorphic scheme, with the ridges representing eyes or brows, which might point to a Viking-Age date. Suggested …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy probable openwork strap fitting or book clasp of Anglo-Scandinavian attribution dating to the late Early Medieval period, c. 1000-1100. The object consists of a broadly pentagonal openwork plate that is plano-convex in section, somewhat similar in form to Williams Class A type 1 stirrup-strap mounts. The apex of the object demonstrates a broken loop- above which would probably originally have sat a zoomorphic terminal. Below this are two elongated perforations, followed by a central circular perforation probably intended to fit over a peg anchored to a b…

The strapslide is zoomorphic and decorated in a highly debased version of the late Anglo-Scandinavian Urnes or Ringerike styles and depicting an animal's head viewed from above, rudimentarily cast in high relief and with further details incised and punched into the surface. The strap slide consists of an off-centre sub-lozengiform boss, domed and with a concave reverse, with two ring-and-dot punches depicting eyes. From the top edge, away from the eyes, is a short, sub-rectangular projection with an indented term…

A late early-medieval, Anglo-Scandinavian (1000-1100) simple zoomorphic stirrup terminal of Williams Group 4 (1997), retaining part of the iron stirrup enclosed within it. The main shaft of the stirrup terminal is semi-circular in cross-section, being flat and undecorated to the reverse. The front has moulded decoration, at the open top of the shaft two bands with c.8 vertical mouldings between, their cross-section a pronounced convex at this point. Below, and at the opposite end, is a beast's head, his snout forming the pointed terminal beyond the cross-bar of the stirrup. The brow …

An early medieval zoomorphic stirrup terminal dating to the 11th century. A cast copper alloy, hollow backed terminal with a supporting ledge. It is in the form of a beast's head with large protruding eyes and a snub-nosed muzzle. The object is heavily corroded but the body appears to have been decorated to mimic scales. The back of the terminal is hollow and retains traces of the iron solder used to attach it to the end of the stirrup arm. This example is similar to those illustrated in figure 2 of David William's Datasheet on these objects (Williams, 1997, Stirrup Terminals, Datashe…

Late Saxon copper alloy stirrup terminal dating to the period c. AD 1000 - 1100. It commences in a old break across the U-shaped socket and expands into a D-shaped foot. The bottom of the foot is flat. Traces of lead alloy are visible within the socket. On the edge of the foot are three circular knobs set at approximately ninety degrees to one another. There is an engraved horizontal groove forming a break point just below the collar. See: Williams, Finds Research Group Datasheet 24, 1997, Fig. 5
