Harness mount
Add to album

This bronze harness mount was found during excavations at the site of the Roman fort at Newstead in Roxburghshire. It was used sometime between 80 and 100 AD.

The mount is curved with a loop at one end. At the other end is a tang for fastening it into a socket. When mounted, it may have projected to the side like an animal's horn.

Leather on harnesses rarely survives, but the metal fittings and ornaments are often preserved.
