An incomplete lead alloy cloth seal dating from the early modern period, probably Queen Anne - George I's reigns, c. 1700-1727. The seal is incomplete and only one single face( of the four part seal) survives. The upper surface is impressed with a rampant Unicorn advancing left within a ring of pellets; at the foot of the unicorn is the number 3. The upper edge of the seal has been pierced by a single hole which has been drilled from both faces. The diameter of the hole is 1.7mm. Similar seals have been recorded by the PAS - all suggest that this form is an alnage seal, that is a sea…

One lead alloy musket shot / ball of post medieval 1600-1800 date. The shot is sub-spherical in shape with a relatively even cut and scratched surface. The shot has had the casting seam and spurs from the mould removed. It is a light grey colour with a relatively thick surface patina. One face has been flattened through impact / use. 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. Musket balls are discussed in Courtney's "Small Arms Acces…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval or post medieval date (1300 - 1800). The weight is sub-circular in plan, is sub-triangular in profile and conical in form. There is no suspension loop although a single circular hole 4.0mm pierces the weight vertically. The weight is a mid-grey colour with an even patina that covers all surfaces. It has been marked and abraded in the soil; this has caused the weight to become asymmetrical. Similar standing weights have been dated to the medieval and post medieval periods. The weight measures 19.7mm wide, 18.7mm thick and is 22.8mm hi…

A lead post medieval casting debris fragment from the casting of window came dating to the period c. AD 1600 - 1700.

Each of the three runners is H-shaped in section. The upper surface has a recessed depression created by metal shrinkage during the casting process and a folded 'skirt' to one side. There is a casting seam visible on both of the short sides. By reference to similar waste from London a 17t…

Lead shot. Cast dumbbell shot, probably for use with a carbine or pistol of military specification, comprising paired spherical balls joined by an integrally cast round section shank. There is no evidence of it being fired. It is thought that the doubled mass of the round would enhance its 'stopping power' in the event of a hit, though at an increased risk of fouling the gun barrel. The use of cast dumbbell shot is characteristic of English practice in the 17th century, while the pistol and carbine would be a weapon used by a cavalry trooper. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1700. …

Cast copper alloy fitting, most probably a Post Medieval handle from a piece of furniture. Alternatively it could be an earlier drop handle from a later medieval casket or possibly a late Medieval robust buckle frame. The fragment is irregular in plan and form due to movement in the ploughsoil.

A small irregular projection extends from one edge and the section of the handle changes being thickest and …
