A Post Medieval copper alloy spur attachment hook dating from about AD 1550 - 1650. The hook is incomplete, with the wider end which would have had a rivet or buckle attached, missing. The plate expands into a cirular plate with rounded shoulders at the broken end, and has a cross bar with rounded ends at the other, which terminates in a backwards hook. The front is decorated with transverse lines. The thin patina, red metal and closely spaced lines all suggest that this is a Post Medieval object. It is 35mm long, 16mm wide and 11mm thick. 3g.

A possible Post Medieval iron cannon ball dating from about AD 1500 - 1950. It is a spherical ball of iron. It is 82mm diameter and 4.2kg (4200g).

Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wakefield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable lead musket ball, of Post-Medieval date, about AD 1750 - 1900. A casting seam is not visible, suggesting it dates from later than the English Civil Wars, and the weight is consistent with pistol shot used by British Forces from the late 18th century onwards. The ball has impacted against something convex and smooth, leaving the ball as a sub-hemispherical shape, with a concave face and irregular convex surface. The shot is 18.5mm in diameter and weighs 12.7g, suggesting that it was intended for use in a pistol (Harding D F, 2012, Lead Shot of the English Civil War). It has a…

A lead possible domino of probable Post Medieval date, about AD 1700 - 1900. It is a plain flat rectangle of lead, which is the right proportions for a domino, but it has no dots marking value.

A piece of Late Medieval to early modern lead casting waste, which is 51.6mm long, 11.7mm wide and 5mm thick. 10.8g. The object is a strip of flat lead, rectangular with rounded ends. There is a casting seam along the centre of the reverse, and the stubs of three jets or runners, with a fouth one trimmed off. At some point, the object was bent and straightened in the middle, damaging the patina. The object would have been produced from the late medieval period to the early modern era, about AD 1400-1850. Compare LEIC-BAD4C1.

County: North Yorkshire

A silver head of a pin, probably of 18th or early 19th century date (AD 1700 - 1850), perhaps from a hat pin or similar. The hollow head is made from two hemispheres and is decorated all over with punched rosettes, each petal being triangular and with eight petals in each motif. There is a projection from the lower hemisphere where corrosion suggests that the missing shaft was of copper alloy. The pin head is about 17mm long, 12 mm diameter and 3.1g. The pin is very similar to SUR-DFF381 though the punched decoration seems to have been made with a different shaped tool.

Three cast lead musket balls, of Post-Medieval date, about AD 1600 - 1800. 1. The casting seam and sprue are visisble. The sprue has been trimmed with nippers leaving two facets.
