Strap-end

Simple hook-and-eye type belt fittings are common finds from medieval urban excavations.  Four examples were recovered during the Whithorn excavation.   A strap-end made from two sub-rectangular copper alloy plates.  One plate has a hooked terminal.  The plates, which are held together with two copper alloy rivets, sandwich a layer of leather (part of the original strap).
