Two opposed and larger compartments on the wall of the object both include a device resembling a cockle shell from which a curl and three comma-shaped features de…

Copper alloy possible domino. Cast flat rectangular playing piece with drilled pits in its surface, in two zones subdivided by the relict trace of a central incised dividing line. There are eight pits to one side of the line and three or four to the other, neither respecting the conventional symmetrical layout of the modern domino, unless some markings had been redefined. They might have been arranged in triangular or diagonal groups of three and five or six pits, though in this case, the peripheral pits on the 'six' side would have been abortive.

Copper alloy probable ferrule. A small cylindrical hollow object with a narrow solid rounded end with an aperture of diameter 1.8mm. The wall of the cylinder is torn, possibly at the site of a light fixing pin [if so, now lost].

Lead alloy spoon fragment. Cast rectangular section stem from a spoon, with three facets to its upper side.

Copper alloy buttons. Seven flat plain discoid buttons of diameters between 27mm and 14.8mm, one hollow and the others the more usual solid variety, with separate loops or the scars from their loss on the backs; in seven cases the loop was attached to a low boss. The other button retains traces of a maker's back stamp on its flat back. A grey tint may arise from white metal plating in the case of the largest button, or from tin in the metal mixes with two others. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Combined Weight: 28.57gms

Copper alloy unidentified object fragment. A small long segment possibly from the wall of a cylindrical object, broken at both ends and along both sides, but with a longitudinal concave strip on its reverse. A pair of blind holes of diameter 2.5mm are juxtaposed near the middle of the convex side, beside a small step in its surface. The objects bears very closely juxtaposed horizontal lines, locally interrupted by wear, which may have arisen from mechanical and rotational wear. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900.

Copper alloy possible nail fragment. A small cast rectangular section shank with a lightly bevelled rounded flat head, kinked at its midpoint and either terminating or broken at a slight expansion at the other end of the object. This is markedly smaller than nails thought to have been used to attach copper plates to the keels of ships, examples of which have been reported from the vicinity; copper bottomed ships became common from the 1760s. However, the use of copper alloy nails to resist corrosion may have been common in nautical contexts. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1800. …

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead probable musket ball. Cast ball with mould line, with numerous flattened facets. The mass, at almost an ounce, may suggest this was intended for use in a smoothbore muzzle loading firearm of military specification, perhaps a light musket, pistol or carbine, or possibly in a charge of canister. The surface condition would be consistent with having been fired as part of a charge of canister - unusually so, among a group of mainly unfired shot reported from the same location. It might alternatively arise from repeated crushing in barrelled storage. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600…
