Lead and iron weight of late medieval or post-medieval date (c. AD 1400 - 1600).

Two iron stubs protrude from the top: these are the remains of a suspension loop. The object has a white patina with red patches from iron corrosion. The object is 18.61mm in length and 14.88mm in diameter. It weighs 30.32g. See YORYM-413052 for a similar example recorded on the database.

Post-medieval lead musket balls complete with casting sprue probably dating to c. 1600-c. 1800. The regularity of these balls may suggest their industrial manufacture at an arsenal.
