Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A corroded cast iron sphere, possibly a post-medieval cannon ball of 75.45mm diameter (c. 3 inches) and 1630g.  The diameter corresponds to the Imperial measurement for the second smallest 17th century cannon, the Saker, which was approximately a 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 inch bore. The name "Saker" derives from a bird of prey, and this medium sized cannon could have been manipulated relatively easily. They were popular during the Civil War, particularly during sieges. The form was suspended in the early 18th century after the formalisation of cannon sizes under Borgard, when …

An incomplete cast copper-alloy mount or stud of probable Post-Medieval date, c. AD 1500- 1700. The stud is probably a decorative element from a leather strap or belt. It has a disc shaped head with flat back face, slightly domed front face, and a central circular aperture. The edges of the head have four notches which gives the impression of a floral or folate design. On the back face are two integrally cast cylindrical rivets, one is broken and one angles at 90 degrees away from the stud and tapers to a sharp point.

A copper alloy Medieval buckle pin, dating to circa AD 1250-1450. The pin is broadly rectangular in section. It has been formed from a single piece of copper alloy that has been folded over at the upper edge in order for it to fit around the buckle frame. The pin then widens after the fold until it narrows along the length to a rounded point. The pin has a transverse ridge before the fold. There are a number of parallels on the PAS database such as WMID-936DCC and WMID-A68ABB. Egan & Pritchard (2002, p.65) suggest that the blunt tip of the pin is confirmation that they would have…

A fragment of a copper alloy unidentified object of uncertain date. The fragment is D-shaped in cross-section with slightly bevelled edges on both faces. It expands slightly towards one end and is slightly curved in profile. It has a fine green and redish patina and the break across either end is fairly fresh. The object is too incomplete to identify, but the most likely possiblity is a Post Medieval trigger or trigger guard or similar fitting from a musket or similar firearm.
