Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Hertfordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lead-alloy cannonball in the form of a solid-cast sphere. The piece is roughly cast and the surface exhibits numerous marks, including linear grooves and shorter, shallow depressions, most of which are likely to be post-depositional damage.

The iron barrel and body of a 'Percussion Pocket Pistol'. Kindly identified by Mr. Mark Murray-Flutter of the Royal Armouries Museum. The barrel is 120mm long and 14mm wide.

An incomplete Medieval stone cannon ball dating between 1200-1400 AD. About two thirds of the cannon ball remain which is likely a caused when shaping rather than as a result of impact. The fact that it was found by the Tower of London would suggest that it was not used and thus discarded as a failed product. Dimensions: diameter: 132.65 mm; weight: 2121g.
