Strap fitting made from two tapering pieces of copper alloy sheet, held together by a copper-alloy rivet at the apex and a second in the centre of the wider end. One plate is decorated with incised lines; it appears to have a double line across the middle dividing it into two small panels, the wider of which at least seems to have a border around. Within each panel is a double-line saltire (diagonal cross). The edges are rather abraded and quite a bit of surface is now missing. 10 mm wide, 18 mm long, rivet c. 2 mm thick. 0.87g. Medieval, probably 13th or 14th century.

Incomplete strap fitting made from copper-alloy sheet. The fitting is 12 mm wide at the attachment end and has a single central rivet hole here; it then continues to a loosely bent fold where the corners are obliquely trimmed, suggesting that the fold was designed to hold or link to another element. The object is broken at the fold. The fitting is decorated with fine incised lines; there is a pair of transverse lines at the attachment end and near the fold, with a saltire (a diagonal cross) in between. Surviving length19 mm; weight 0.88g. Medieval, probably 13th or 14th century.

Strap fitting made from a single slightly tapering sheet of copper alloy, bent in half and originally secured at the wider end by a single rivet, now missing. There is a wide gap at the central fold and the corners here have been obliquely trimmed, suggesting that the fold was perhaps intended to suspend something like a pendent mount or to hold something like a strap clasp. The fitting is decorated on the front half with a saltire (a diagonal cross) made up of neatly engraved zig-zag or rocker-arm ornament. The backplate is undecorated and is slightly narrower than the front. Maxi…

Strap-end or plate from a strap clasp, made from a long rectangular piece of undecorated copper-alloy strip folded in half and secured by a pair of copper-alloy rivets (one surviving, one missing). The surviving rivet appears designed to clasp material up to 4 mm thick. Width of strip varies from 9 to 10 mm; length of object, 26 mm; weight, 2.09g. The style of the rivet suggests a medieval date. Strap clasps were in use from the 13th to 15th centuries.

Chunky hooked fitting made from copper alloy. The [looped] end of the curved part of the hook is broken off, but enough survives to show that the hook's cross-section was lozengiform with a lower carination internally and a higher one externally. The hook itself is large and the break is relatively fresh. On the back of the hook is a raised flattened area. The surviving end, near the raised flattened area, turns a right angle, but keeps the same cross-section, and becomes a straight shaft decorated with diagonal grooves running across the carination to give a twisted cable effect. Thi…

Copper-alloy openwork mount, perhaps from a strap. It is basically rectangular, 24 x 17 mm, although now slightly bent. A flat frame runs around the outside, thickened at each corner to take a rivet hole; one rivet hole is now broken (old break). Rising from within this frame is an almost three-dimensional lion. The lion is in profile towards the left, with its head turned to look out of the frame towards the observer. Both hind paws and the lion's left forepaw rest on the base of the frame; the lion's right forepaw stretches towards the left-hand side of the frame. All of …

Long narrow bar-mount made from copper alloy, with the remains of a loop at one end. The bar-mount is 6 mm wide, and is D-shaped in cross-section with a flange down either long edge. The flanges appear to have worn beaded decoration. There is a rivet hole at either end, and beyond one of these is a narrowed bent-under projection which was probably originally a suspension loop or hook. Length of the bar-mount without projection, 32 mm; total length, 35 mm.

Bar-mount with pendent loop, both made from copper alloy. The bar-mount is 4 mm wide, with a narrower lower end which was originally bent around the pendent loop and secured by a rivet at the lower end of the mount. It is now broken at the bend. The mount is also broken at an upper rivet hole; its surviving length is 18 mm. The pendent loop is a quatrefoil with one foil having a constriction around which the bar-mount is bent. It measures 12.5 x 12.5 mm. The total combined length is 29 mm. A similar example is illustrated in Egan and Pritchard 1991, no. 1189, from a late 14th-c…

Copper-alloy bar-mount. It is rectangular in shape, 21.5 x 5 mm, and has bevelled edges. It does not appear to be decorated. The main part of the mount is 2 mm thick, but the addition of a small integral rivet at either end brings the total thickness up to 4 mm.

Crude mount made from thin copper-alloy sheet, 24 x 6 mm, with one long edge straight and the other having two shallow incurves forming three lobes. The short edges are rounded. Each of the three lobes accommodates an iron rivet. There is little dating evidence, but the mount is a similar size to the type known as a bar-mount.

Copper-alloy mount made from a piece of strip folded in half to form a basically rectangular shape. The attachment edge on the front is decoratively if crudely shaped, with a wide V-shaped cut-out in the centre and a narrower one to either side. The back plate is cut straight across. Below this is a single off-centre copper-alloy rivet, now rather corroded. Then comes a more central circular hole in both front and back plates, 3 mm in diameter; this is probably decorative, but could have served to reinforce a pin hole. At the fold, each corner has a large rectangular cut-out and th…

Flat rectangular copper-alloy mount measuring 29 x 15 mm, with a central hole measuring 5 mm in diameter. It is in excellent condition, with a highly polished front; this has bevelled edges and is decorated with a border of rocker-arm engraving around a saltire of similar rocker-arm which is cut by the hole. There is a separate copper-alloy rivet in the centre of each short edge; the rivets are 4 mm long. This mount may be purely decorative, or it may have served to reinforce the holes for the pin.

Unusually shaped mount made from copper-alloy sheet. It is in the shape of a crescent with, in the centre of the convex edge, a projecting fleur-de-lis. There is a rivet hole in the centre of the fleur-de-lis and also one at either end of the crescent. On one face, the edges are slightly bevelled and two tiny grooves separate the stem of the fleur-de-lis from the crescent; the reverse is flat. The crescent is 16 mm wide and the entire mount is 22 mm long.

Copper-alloy strap-slide, used for holding down the free end of a strap. It is basically rectangular, measuring 19 x 18 mm; the upper edge is decoratively curved downwards at either end and upwards in the centre. The central part has cross-hatched decoration and is very slightly expanded. The opposite edge has a central circular rivet hole. This strap-slide probably formed a set with similar belt-mounts with expanded domed centres decorated with cross-hatching (e.g. Egan and Pritchard 1991, no. 1161); these appear to date from the second half of the fourteenth century.

Large barred mount made from copper alloy. The plate is made out of thin sheet and although it has lost most of its edges appears to have been roughly rectangular, with a curved decorative cut-out on each long edge close to the bar-mount. The attachment edge has rounded corners and a single rivet hole blocked by copper-alloy corrosion; the other edge has a bar-mount made of thick sheet, C-shaped in cross-section, attached by a separate copper-alloy rivet 6 mm long. The bar-mount has a rectangular notch cut out of its inner edge (i.e. the edge opposite to the one on the edge of the p…

Barred mount made from copper alloy. The plate is made out of thin sheet, and appears to have lost most of its edges. As it survives now, it is roughly figure-of-eight shaped, with one lozengiform lobe and one half-lozenge lobe. The lozengiform lobe is at the attachment end, and has a single rivet hole blocked with copper-alloy corrosion. The half-lozenge lobe has a bar-mount running across it made of thicker sheet and C-shaped in cross-section. The bar-mount has no notch, and is attached by a separate copper-alloy rivet 5 mm long. This rivet has a separate squarish rove made fro…

Possible barred mount. A piece of copper-alloy sheet, now fragmentary but originally shield-shaped, has a broken rivet hole towards the pointed end. The straight end has a bar-mount fixed across it, made from solid rectangular-section copper alloy bar with the short ends bevelled, rather than the more usual curved piece of copper-alloy sheet. This is attached by separate two copper-alloy rivets rather than the more usual one; the more complete rivet is 5 mm long, and has corrosion around its shaft suggesting the original presence of a rove.
