M/1992/29. Anglo-Saxon strap-end, made of two bronze plates. It is decorated on one side with dots and circles and there may be faint traces of inlay. The plates split apart at one end where a leather strap was fixed into them. The strap end made it easier to thread the strap through a buckle. This is one of several Anglo-Saxon objects found by workmen when they were building Edridge Road in Croydon, between February 1893 and September 1894. Some of the objects were given to the old Grangewood Museum in Croydon and are now looked after by Croydon Museum Service. The rest were given to the British Museum. Between 1600 and 1300 years ago, Edridge Road was the site of an Anglo-Saxon cemetery. Noticed a mistake? Have some extra information about this object? Please contact us museum@croydon.gov.uk
