Pendants like this are thought to have been suspended from horse harnesses in late medieval times.
Made from copper alloy, it would have once had a bright appearance. It is also likely that the sunken panels on the shield would have been inlaide with richly coloured enamel. Catching the light this would have drawn attention to the status of the rider and owner of the horse.
This find was recovered during archaeological excavations at Caerlaverock Castle, Dumfries and Galloway, between 1955-1966.
