Record ID: SWYOR-DDFF23
Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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). This size and weight does not conform to standard cannon ball measurements, but it could be a non-standard missile. Alternatively, it could also be a ball from a crushing mill, machinery or a bearing from a swiveling piece of machinery such as a crane or gun.

Object type: PIN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.
