A complete lead shot ball of Post-Medieval date (AD 1640-1750). The object has a circumferentially running casting seam and a projecting casting spru. Around the casting spru is a large amount of iron corrosion and possibly a slightly projecting ferrous metal spike which passes centrally through the object.
