Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy musket ball or pistol shot of Post-Medieval date, c.1600 - 1900. The object is spherical with a faint casting line around the circumference.

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper-alloy buckle of Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1660 - 1720. The buckle is a double looped sub-oval with concave bifid sides with moulded triple knops to either side of the spindle holes. Moulded lozenge shaped pin rests are present on the outer edge of each loop. The spindle remains with a worn and corroded chape looped around.
