Object type: BUCKLE
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A copper-alloy sub-oval buckle frame dating from the 11th or 12th century. The outer edge and sides sub-triangular in cross-section; the latter develop into moulded devolved animal heads at each end of the bar (beast biting bar type). The bevelled front of the outer edge is decorated with engraved lines, transverse towards the centre, tending towards oblique on the sides. The bar is narrower than the frame and is recessed. The pin is missing but there is a groove to act as a pin rest. Iron corrosion product on both surfaces at the end of one of the sides, around the animal head, is cu…

A worn and corroded copper-alloy strap-fitting of medieval date. The artefact has a sub D-shaped frame with central internal projection from its outer edge. The incurved outer edge effectively consists of a pair of semicircles which converge in this projection which terminates in a slightly expanded knob. The front of the object is bevelled slightly both externally and internally on the front; the reverse is flat. Around the bar part of a sheet plate has been retained; since it is partial the artefact can be considered incomplete, although the frame is an intact component. The plate is…

A medieval copper-alloy buckle of the 'gaping-mouth beast' type, complete with its pin (c. 12th century). This buckle is moulded in three dimensions and takes the form of a hollow, open-mouthed animal head which is integrally cast with a frame and bar. The head is sub-circular when viewed from above and a three quarters circle in cross-section. The top of the head is decorated with a central nasal ridge which bifurcates about halfway along the head to turn into ears which continue down the sides of the head to the base. Set in front of the ears are moulded elongated oval eyes which sta…

A cast copper-alloy artefact of c. 11th-century date, probably a strap-fitting. The object is a ring with a thick, slightly angular hoop and convex crude quatrefoil bezel. The quatrefoil head is perpendicular to the hoop. It is decorated with four triangular grooves arranged in saltire, but not meeting at the centre. The quatrefoil thus created has elements of slightly different sizes, one perpendicular to the hoop being quite small compared to the others. The artefact is now a red-brown colour, covered in patches of light-green corrosion product The artefact can be paralleled to a st…

An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object would have consisted of a central circular plate with boss from which four arms would have emerged, one at each cardinal point; one arm has been lost completely, while another arm now only has a vestigial loop. Integral with the central circle is a high domed boss which is hollow backed. The arms are semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. The surviving loops are oval and bevelled externally. They feature three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-b…

An incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (c. 11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss; part of one of the terminal loops have been lost. The arms are semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At what would have been the centre of the complete link there is a low moulded boss with a small knop extending either side of the plate. The boss is solid. The plate terminated at each end in a loop; as noted, one is now vestigial. The other is circular and features three rounded knops, one at each cardinal point. The object is a red-bro…

A corroded and incomplete late early-medieval cast copper-alloy harness link (11th century AD). The object consists of a central plate with boss, though one half of the plate beyond the boss, along with its loop, have been lost. The arm is semicircular in cross-section, with a flat reverse. At one end of this is a moulded boss extending either side of the plate. It represents a face, probably zoomorphic rather than anthropomorphic. Just protruding above the plate are a pair of pointed ears. Below the plate is the nose and the lopsided V-shaped mouth. The nose is moulded, triangular, as…

A copper-alloy pin detached from a medieval buckle described as a 'disc-on-pin' type, and classifiable as Redmayne's Type B. The pin is formed of a large central circular plate with protrusions emerging from opposing points. The first of the protrusions is the pin tip, which gradually tapers to a blunted point. The loop, opposite, is slightly recessed on the front and curves back behind the plate, but does not form a closed loop. The front of the plate is highly decorated. It is moulded, with two main wide borders, that at the circumference lower than that within it. They both surround…

A fragment from a copper-alloy single-looped oval buckle frame (c. 14th century). It consists of half of the outer edge and the side which extends from it. It has an enlarged outer edge which is flat; this narrows gradually as it curves and develops into the side. The outer edge had a transverse groove at its centre which acted as a pin rest. The frame has broken at this weak point where the outer edge is thinned. Although the buckle was presumably snapped when it broke the breaks are now smooth. A field is delineated on the front of the frame by an engraved border which follows the e…
