Record ID: CORN-27F352
Object type: BULLET
Broad period: MODERN
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead bullet with hollow core, cylindrical in shape and sub-circular in section, with three incised parallel lines around its circumference at the mid point. The bullet has been bent and flattened through use, from the impact it received when hitting a hard surface, once it had been fired. The diameter of the bullet has been distorted by the impact and when perfectly round, would probably have been about 16 mm. From the diamater and weight of this bullet, it appears to be a 0.625 (16 mm) bullet from an English Baker rifle type, originally the Pattern 1800 Infantry Rifle, but refer…

Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two cast lead shot, probably musket balls, spherical in shape, one with two incised parallel lines on the surface at its widest point, but not damaged from use. The diameter of about 16 mm and weight of about 23 g of the shot compares well with examples from the 17th and 18th centuries in the Royal Institution of Cornwall's collections and those on the database. These are definitely for small arms and may have come from a smooth bore musket. Musket calibres ranged from 0.5 inches (13 mm) to 0.8 inches (20 mm), but during the 17th century they tend to be larger and heavier than these e…

Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask, almost rectangular in shape, with a short neck flattened closed to seal it. The ampulla is slightly waisted with angular loops, on either side at this point, to suspend the flask from a cord around the pilgrim's neck. It is decorated on one face with fleur de lis and lattice within a shield, surmounted by a two concentric circles with radiating lines between them.

Cast lead pilgrim ampulla or holy water flask with the neck bent forwards and almost folded closed to seal it.

It is decorated on one side with moulded ridges radiating from the centre to imitate a scallop shell. Beneath the shell there is a rectangular stand or box with an incised lattice pattern. The back of the ampulla has a circular stamp, following the curvature of the body, with a crescent wi…

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead fishing weight, lozenge-shaped in plan, plano-convex in profile and triangular in section, with tapering ends, which have been pinched and perforated with ovoid holes to suspend the sting at either end, around the protruding rectangular knops. This weight was most likely tied into fishing nets, due to its size and shape, and these are commonly found in Cornwall, but are difficult to date.
