Copper-alloy clasp, complete with rectangular plate and 'crowned head' frame. The plate is made from a piece of copper-alloy strip 11.5 mm wide, folded in half to make a plate 34 mm long, and with frame recesses cut. It is secured by two longitudinally set copper-alloy rivets. The engraved decoration consists of a line down each long side, with four chevrons (pointing towards the frame) between. The frame is rectangular with slightly outcurved sides, and the outer edge is in the shape of a broad, almost triangular crowned head. The crown has four decorative perforations. There is no ro…

Rotating end from a strap clasp, made from copper alloy. The plate is made from a trapezoidal piece of sheet, with the longest edge bent into a cylinder which retains the outer edge of the clasp's frame. The other long edge has a trapezoidal projection in the centre, and close to this a bar-mount made of thicker copper-alloy sheet is fixed to the plate by a single copper-alloy rivet. Between the bar-mount and the cylinder is a line of rocker-arm engraving. Maximum width of mount, 18 mm. Total width including frame of clasp, 19 mm. Length 9 mm. Thickness 9 mm.

Strap-end consisting of two pieces of copper-alloy sheet now held together by a single separate copper-alloy rivet at one end. One plate is more highly polished and is decorated with a saltire of rocker-arm engraving at the attachment edge. The strap-end tapers from 10 mm wide at the attachment edge to 8 mm wide just before a series of cut-outs herald the start of the terminal. This is broken at a second rivet hole but was probably originally quite long and elaborate. There appears to be a scrap of textile retained between the plates at the attachment end. Total surviving length 48.5 m…

Corroded strap-end made from two pieces of copper alloy. The attachment end is broken and the two sheets have sprung apart and bent; the surviving length is c. 37 mm. A wavy line of rocker-arm engraving can just be made out running the length of one sheet. The long edges are cut into a gently wavy outline towards the closed end, and the end itself is pointed. Here the two sheets are joined, perhaps by solder; although it is not possible to see any rivets, perhaps this is merely due to corrosion. Probably 13th or 14th century.

Composite strap-end made from two sheets of copper alloy. The underplate is much thicker than the upper plate, and has survived better; it is 37 mm long and 9 mm wide. The upper plate is attached by a single separate copper-alloy rivet at the attachment end, and another close to the terminal. It is decorated with a saltire of rocker-arm engraving at the attachment end, and one long edge is very fragmentary. Both sheets are cut into a trefoil terminal. 14th century.

Composite strap-end made from two sheets of copper alloy, held together by a copper-alloy rivet at each end. The open end is very slightly incurved and is 12 mm wide. The strap-end then tapers gently to 9 mm wide just before curved 'shoulders' and a flat trefoil terminal. One sheet has faint traces of a saltire of rocker-arm engraving. The metal is a curious bronze colour, as if from a waterlogged context, with patches of bronze disease. This can be arrested by keeping the strap-end as dry as possible. The weight was measured together with soil encrustations between the two plates.

Composite strap-end made from three sheets of copper alloy sandwiched together. The strap-end is basically sub-rectangular, tapering from 16 mm wide at the attachment end to 14 mm wide before being cut into an elaborate (roughly cross-shaped) terminal. The central sheet was originally slightly longer than the other two, but has had its sub-rectangular part folded back on itself to make a gap for the strap at the attachment end. One of the outer plates is decorated on the sub-rectangular part, with a line of worn rocker-arm along each long edge and a line of six double-strand oblique li…

Anthropomorphic bracket from a copper-alloy chafing dish of Lewis's Type F. It is made out of a flat piece of copper-alloy plate 3 mm thick, with one end in the shape of a two-dimensional profile human head. There is engraved decoration on either face, consisting of a nose, large mouth with thick lips, a large eye, lines showing creases in the cheek and nose, the edge of the hair and two lines for the chin. The effect is of a man's large fat face with a small nose and big eye. This occupies about a third of the bracket. The central part is curved and tapers slightly; it would have exte…

Copper-alloy slide key from a tumbler lock, of Winchester type 2. The bow is lozengiform, with a little knop at the far end. The stem is very short, and is pierced at the tip. The bit is very long, and L-shaped; it has a rectangular perforation before two prongs project at right angles. The key would have been put into a long keyhole and the hollow tip engaged onto a pin projecting from the bolt. The key would then have been turned so that the prongs would have passed through a hole in the bolt and pushed a spring out of the way. Then the key and the bolt would have been slid along in…

Sewing ring, comparatively flimsy, made from copper alloy. The lower rim is very slightly thickened; above this is a spiral of hand-punched rectangular indentations. At the top, the spiral of indentations runs off the edge of the ring and then stops, so that in one area there is an undecorated rim. Diameter at lower edge 19-20 mm, at top edge 17-18 mm; height 9 mm.

Probable sewing ring made from a sheet of copper alloy bent round and originally with a soldered seam. The rim is unthickened but has a bold groove around it which gives the impression of an out-turned edge. Above this is a zone of indentations; five rows of circular depressions set in diagonal rows, which appear to have been made in one operation (perhaps using a rouletting wheel) rather than individually. Above this is a single row of smaller indentations, then a faint groove. The soldered seam has burst open but traces of the silvery solder can be seen. Although the top begins to cu…

Small oval lead dish, now crushed flat. The base appears to measure about 34 x 25 mm, and has relief decoration; there is a border of short radiating lines, and then some pellets around the centre as well as a visible casting seam. The sides of the dish were perhaps 11 mm tall. These small lead cups may have had a variety of uses. Many are D-shaped, with a flat back fitted with loops or holes for attachment to the bars of a bird's cage. One was found on the Thames foreshore with dice within, so it was perhaps being used as a shaking cup. They all appear to be late medieval or early po…

Copper-alloy buckle frame, oval with an offset (but not narrowed) bar and an ornate moulding along the outer edge. The bar has a distinct off-centre thickening, which looks as if it is the result of deliberate manufacture rather than wear. This thickening would have kept the two loops of a buckle plate in place. The moulding on the outer edge is 5 mm wide and has symmetrical decoration which continues around both front and reverse. In the centre is a transverse ridge to either side of the pin rest; then comes a groove, then an area which is incurved externally to make a corner projecti…

Small copper-alloy purse bar of Ward-Perkins's Type B4 (Ward-Perkins 1940, 167-9). It has a small rectangular loop, with a shank below which has a concave-sided, circular-section waist and then a constriction to allow it to pass through the bar, with an integral rove at the bottom. The bar is very flimsy - just 3.5 x 2 mm in maximum cross-section, and 45 mm long with a narrowing at either end to receive the frame. No terminals to the bar (which would have held the frame in place) survive. Ward-Perkins dates these to c. 1500-1550.

Two pieces of copper-alloy strip, 13 mm wide, each broken at a rivet hole at both ends. The holes are circular and 4 mm in diameter. The strips are each decorated with a row of punched circles nearly 2 mm in diameter which run down each long edge. The punch has a slightly straighter edge along one side of the circle, and these straight edges are lined up on one side along the edge, and on the other side towards the middle, giving a neat appearance. At one end of one strip the punch has been held at an angle so that a crescent rather than a circle results. The strips are corroded to a b…

Very corroded copper-alloy strip, between 17 and 19 mm wide, decorated along either long edge with an engraved line, outside which is a line of small stamped annulets. It is broken at both ends, and at one end a large iron rivet survives to a length of 6.5 mm. A strip decorated with stamps down either side is characteristic of early Anglo-Saxon bucket mounts, but the patina is unusual for one of these. Most of the present surface is a dark purple colour, but there are small patches of green overlying this and around the rivet there is a brown surface, partly rust, which appears to ove…
