Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire

A post medieval lead probable cannon ball dating to c AD 1500-1600. The cannon ball is almost spherical with hammered edges making the circumference irregular. There is a small hole 4.28mm in diameter in the cannon ball, it is not clear whether this was the site of casting sprue or where the cannon ball was damaged as there are cracks running away from the hole. It is not clear whether the cannon ball has been fired.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large corroded cast lead object, possibly a weight or potentially a lead cannon shot. It is oval shaped in its current form but has suffered from extensive damage that has resulted in partial flattening to two sides in addition to multiple and crude incisions on all surfaces. The entire object measures 83.71mm in length, 68.03mm in width and 1927g (approximately 4.24 pounds) in weight. The precise function of this object remains uncertain. However, its discovery in an area that may have been subject to battle or similar activities during the Post-Medieval period raises the possibili…
