Gilded Rowel 1300AD to 1399AD
A rowel is a wheel-like part of a spur. This must be part of a special set because it is gilded. Only rich people could afford to keep horses for riding.
Gilded spurs were buckled onto a man's heels as part of the formal ceremony of knighting. This would have placed him in an elevated position within the social hierarchy that underpinned the Feudal system.
