Object type: VESSEL

From the back of the upper edge projects an integral lug with a circular perforation at the apex of the loop. The perforation is slightly sub-circular, possibly due to wear along the upper edge from a handle. The head has straight hair depicted by slightly oblique linear grooves along the top of the object.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two cast lead alloy shot of Post-Medieval date (c. AD 1700 - 1800). Both are broadly spherical and there is no evidence that it has been fired. The surfaces are even and a cream / light grey in colour. 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. This is possibly from an 18th century pistol. The shot measures i) 13.08mm in diameter and weighs 10.32grams. ii) 11.72mm in diameter and weighs 8.65grams.

A complete lead uniface token dating to the Medieval to Post Medieval period (c. AD 1300-1600). One face of the token depicts a long cross dividing the legend with a single pellet or annulet in each quarter. The legend does not appear to be readable. The reverse of the token is plain.

Though it could also be a Powell Type 14 and have been made to mimic the long cross pennies, thus dating the item slightly earlier. The overall dimensions are as fo…
