Description
A Medieval copper alloy single-looped buckle with surviving incomplete copper alloy sheet plate, probably dating to c. AD 1150-1350. The buckle frame is oval in plan, with a narrowed and slightly offset bar and with an elaborated outer edge, cast into three knops divided by transverse bands. The upper face of the frame is internally bevelled, whilst the reverse is flat. A simple rectangular copper alloy sheet plate is wrapped around the bar, incomplete and truncated in line with a circular perfration, now incomplete, and with a second circular perforation to accomodate a simple copper alloy wire pin, which survives in situ. The back of the buckle plate is lost.

Dimensions: length 19.3mm; length of buckle frame 12.9mm; width 16.1mm; width of plate 8.5mm; thickness 2.5mm; weight 1.84g.

Comparable buckles are published by Egan & Pritchard (2002: 76-77, nos. 312-314), excavated in London in contexts dating to c. 1150-1350.
