Cannon ball of probable post medieval date (1500 - 1700). The cannon ball is sub-spherical with a diameter of 49.5mm. It weighs 664 grams (1lb 7ΒΌ ozs). It is made of either lead or lead alloy which has been presumably cast; although no casting flanges are present. The surface of the cannon ball has a number of dents and scrapes. These may have been formed through use, however they seem to be regular and the cannon ball may have been trimmed. However, this trimming might have been a result of recycling. The ball is of a mid grey white colour with small areas of slig…

Roughly half of a cast iron cannon ball most likely to be circa 18th century in date. It is 85.5mm in diameter and weighs 1507g. An enquiry has been made to the Battlefields Trust and we are awaiting a reply. It is most likely to have been used for practise in the area it was found as no battles occurred there.

Small possible cannon ball found whilst metal detecting near to Amlwch. It is in good condition, and has a dark brown surface patina. It may be the type of cannon ball fired by a falconet cannon (Bailey 2000, 94-5). These are 1.5lbs in weight and fired from cannon with a 2 inch (5.08 cm) bore (ibid.). It was not possible to accurately date the object, but if it is a cannon ball it is likely to date from the 18th century although some sources have suggested that these cannon were in use from the 16th century. An alternative interpretation for the object is as a ball used to cru…
