Anybody own "Medieval and Post-Medieval Finds from Exeter 1971-1980"
- If anybody has, or has access to a copy of, "Medieval and
Post-Medieval Finds from Exeter 1971-1980", I wonder if I could impose
for a copy of the article "Objects in Non-Ferrous Metal" by AR
Goodall, pages 337-48?
I'm still obsessing over dog collars, and "Medieval Finds from
Excavations in London: Dress Accessories" mentions that the
aforementioned article displays a mount interpreted as a swivel for a
harness or a dog's lead. A web search for medieval swivels seems to
give me purse hangers and pendants to the exclusion of harness or
I've seen mentions of swivels and the materials from which they are
made in documentary records (The Hound and the Hawk cites gifts of
hounds with collars of white silk with buckle and swivel of silver),
but this is the first reference I've seen to an archaeological find
being so labeled. Looking at countless pictures, I have found no
evidence for the use of a D-ring, as the TI article by Alianora Munro
suggested. This makes a degree of sense; the rope applied to medieval
collars obviously does not include a swivel; the leashes attached to
modern D-ring collars include a swivel in the snap hook. When this is
neglected, the leash twists in a manner that makes it harder to
Is this the sort of thing that, if I ever get it done, would suitable
for in an A&S competition? I suspect I'll have to write up
documentation for myself, anyway, so it might be worth doing?

Sorry, I don't have that one. Perhaps one of the libraries (above
link) is reasonably close to you.. or you can inter-library loan a copy.
