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

A cast lead alloy shot / ball for use in a pistol of Post-Medieval date (c. AD 1600 - 1800). The shot is broadly spherical with a casting seam around the centre. The shot has a flat surface possibly from impact and a cylindrical sprue from the casting process. It is cream / light grey in colour and has some damaged from the ploughsoil.

Similar shot have been dated to the later Post-Medieval period however the date range should extend into the early modern period as similar projectiles were used in firearms throughout this period.

The shot measures 11.29mm in diameter and weighs 7.68grams.
