The location of the rivets should be a clue as to it's use. It looks like there is a central one at one end, then three along just one side?

Good point on the rivets. Actually it only has one rivet, the marks on the side are just corrosion. Looking at other examples with parallels on shape (although without design) it seems to definitely be pre 1500 with a 1300-1400 date most likely. All my good finds on this field are where there was a house. The persons living there liked fancy buckles and didn’t drop many coins :thumbdown: The soldino fragment is the earliest coin I’ve found here

Anyway I think it might have been enamelled to but I’ll do more photos to see if you agree.
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Have been concentrating on the image and looked up items with, Bishop, Pilgrim, with no success. Initially thought it was a Sword being held but looks more like a staff.
Due to the image of the figure, this is one of the best finds this year in my eyes.
Certainly worth emailing your FLO.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

It is a sword, I’ll try and do another photo of that later too .

Here’s the best image of the writing I can get...

If it helps I think that looking at it the rounded end should be to the right as in the pic just above.
Top row, same design at either end, a diamond and something else, about a three letter word, last letter 'U'.
Bottom row, middle letter 'U', ending in maybe 'YLL' ? :Thinking:

Ref the writing.
How about an old fashioned pencil rubbing, see if that reveals anything.
Cath also looked for anything with a Knight, on the PAS site.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

If the ending is "yll" could that be welsh?

It makes no sense to me, I will admit it freely :D

Even when I look at the bit of inscribed lead I found a few years ago alongside the transcription/translation it dosent bare any resemblance to what it says to me :lol: :lol: :thumbsup:
