SHOT

Unique ID: WAW-BF6AB1

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An irregular spherical shaped piece of iron shot / small cannon ball probably of post medieval / civil war date (1600-1700 AD). The ball is of a mid-brown purplish colour with small areas of flaking and active corrosion. The shot is in fairly good condition and with no obvious dents or grazes which might suggest use. The size is small either suggesting it was used as grape shot or that it was for a small hand-held cannon (possibly a rabinet (1inch bore) or serpentine (1 ½ inch bore). The diameter of the ball is unknown due to corrosion.

The shot is sub-spherical with a diameter of 28.03mm (1.1 inches). It weighs 69.3 grams (2.45 ozs).
