Stone ball approximately 140mm in diameter and weighing around 5lbs (2268g). Pecked appearance, very odd stone, grey with lots of white flecking. Not a local stone. It is too heavy for compressed tarmac I think and too well compressed. Found by a workman building a new prison on the site of a former munitions factory. It was apparently found about 1 metre deep in some very black soil below the more modern brick buildings. The same man also has 2 complete stones and 3 halves, one sounds like its made of iron because he describes casting flanges. (Steve Grenter, WCBC, March 2015). …

A ragstone cannon ball dating from the Late Medieval or Post Medieval period. It is sub-spherical and has part missing. It weighs 452g and is 76mm in diameter which makes it the correct size and weight for a Falconet cannon (15 and 7/8 ounces). Falconets were invented in the late 15th century and were used throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. The find spot of this example makes it highly likely that it was used in the Battle of Towton in 1461.
