Copper alloy strap end. Tongue-shaped strap end with a pointed end, made of two sheets of thickness 0.8mm crimped together at the outer end with a rivet of diameter 1.8mm and length 2.7mm passing through both the strap and the inner ends of the plates. Textile fragments of an off-white tint are trapped between the plates, showing a whole strap had been discarded, and possibly illustrating the operation of sumptuary laws which restricted the use of leather belts to the better sort. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1400 Length: 22.5mm, Width: 13.4mm, Thickness (overall): 3.2mm, Weigh…

Copper alloy strap end fragment. The proximal or belt end of a small strap end with a split end through which pass a pair of rivets of diameter 2.2mm and length 3.6mm, burred at the back. The terminal zone where the rivets appear is plain, and is separated from the rest of a [relative to its size] broad plate by a pair of moulded transverse ribs. Further decoration is represented by two larger lines at right angles to the ribs with narrower curls in the angles. The object ends here, apparently having been sheared at an angle, an operation which would have required considerable and deli…

Lead strap end. A cast rectangular plate with a split inner end where a pair of lead rivets of diameter 3.4mm and length 5.8mm pass through both leaves of the plate, being burred behind. The riveted end is divided from the rest of the plate by a beaded border which encloses a symmetrical figurative motif. The scene resembles a pair of draped Victories facing each other with a tall trophy between them, and, if this reading is sustained, it must be drawn from a later Roman coin. The back is entirely plain. Despite its straight outer end, this object presumably derives from Thomas's class…

Copper alloy strap end. Cast composite strap end comprising two narrow straight-sided plates, of thickness 0.9mm and 1.2mm, with a spacer plate between them with a thickened bullet-shaped terminal of plano-convex section. A rivet of diameter 1.5mm and length 2.8mm passes through both plates at the inner end. An incised groove around the convex part of the terminal confers a vaguely zoomorphic, or even phallic, appearance upon what is probably intended as an acorn terminal. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1400 Length: 34.4mm, Width: 6.2mm, Thickness (at terminal): 4.2mm, Weight: 3.56gms.
