Belt fragment
woven

TEX01_
SEWF03

Object
: Strap end fragment
Culture: Medieval
Area of Origin: UK
Material: to be determined
Size: mm x mm
Weight: grams
From artifact: STRAP ENDS WITH FRAGMENTS
Item SEWF03

Notes: The fragment was retrieved from a strap end with rectangular two piece construction. Textile belt fragment survives. Strap end has a singular piercing with the rivet intact. Belt fragment is textile and remains unidentified at this stage but will undergo further testing. It is likely to be wool, as I would expect a higher quality strap fitting for use with a silk tablet-woven belt.
