County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of 657 probable round shot all found in the same hole. The balls are of two main sizes, the larger making up the majority of the group. The smaller balls are possibly for a pistol. One ball more closely resembles a shot plug. The rough diameter for the larger balls is approximately 17mm, and many have mould lines. There is a variation across the group in the level of oxidation on the surface of the balls, but this may be due to varying soil conditions throughout the hole. The average weight for the sample taken was 33.97g, with individual weights in the sample from 26.2g …

County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A small copper alloy object that resembles an axle or roller. The object is one piece of metal, but can be understood to consist of three areas that are contiguous; a central shaft and two circular projections of unequal size that emerge from and encircle it. The shaft emerging from the largest projection appears to terminate abruptly, possibly indicating that is continued further or has broken. The other smaller projection tapers smoothly to a rounded end. The entire object follows a slight curve, which may be a product of some action upon it after deposition rather than its original…
