At the fold the corners and the central notch of the plate are cut away to accommodate the buckle frame and pin respectively. The back side of the plate is narrower and slightly shorter than the front but at least some of this is due to damage. On the …

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment; the finder kindly suggests this to be part of a clothing fastener. Cast plate, broken on all its edges, bearing a probably symmetrical anthropomorphic motif of paired eyes as oval doubled rings with three ridges suggesting a nasal bar between them. The back is plain, so a function as a mount might also be entertained. Among fasteners, this recalls the lower part of a cruciform brooch, though there is no trace of pin gear. The object may be gilded though thisis concealed by treatment with oil or Vaseline.Suggested date: Early Medieval, 500-850 …

Unidentified gilded copper-alloy object, probably medieval. It is a fairly flat sexfoil mounted on a longer but thinner oval back-plate. Each foil has a circular concave depression on the front and external edges which are slightly expanded and tri-lobed. At the centre is a circle of similar size to the foils, also with a similarly-sized circular concave depression. The back-plate is undistinctive. It is not clear how it is attached to the sexfoil, perhaps by a central intergral rivet. There is no trace of a rivet on the reverse. Gilding survives in and around the depressions on the f…
