Gold Buckle from Taplow Anglo-Saxon Burial Mound
Access to the barrow, which lies in the old churchyard close to the remains of an Anglo-Saxon church, is reached by means of a footpath from Cliveden Road.
The Gold buckle has Style II decoration in the form of a writhing animal. The loop is kidney-shaped with cloisonné garnet inlay; the tongue has a basal shield also with cloisonné garnet inlay. The plate is triangular and decorated with filigree wire. There is a garnet cross on the boss on the apex.
