A post-medieval, cast iron cannon ball, probably for the type of light cannon known as a falcon, dating from 1600-1800AD. It is 2.5 inches in diameter and weighs just under 2.5lbs. It was found within range of Penistone Church, which is known to have been garrisoned by the Parliamentarians in the English Civil wars.

An iron cannon ball probably dating from the Post Medieval period. At 883g (1lb, 15oz) and a diamater of 62mm (2.4in) this was almost certainly used with a Falcon Cannon which had a bore of 2.5in and took a ball of 2lb. The cannon ball is rusted and has a flaking surface but is otherwise in good condition. These cannon were developed in the late 15th century, but continued to be used into the modern period. It probably dates from the 16th or 17th century, but could be later.

Object type: CANNON BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast iron cannon ball of probable post-medieval date. The cannon ball is in fairly good condition, though it suffers from some iron corrosion and the surface metal is flaking in places. The cannon ball has a diameter of 75.2 mm, suggesting it may have been shot from either a Minion or Falcon type of cannon, dating from the late 15th to 17th century. Such cannons were in use during the English Civil War, although whether this cannon ball is related to such activity is difficult to say.

County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A cast iron cannon ball. 85mm (3.5") in diameter and 275mm (approx. 11") in circumference and weights 2.646kilograms. A cannon ball of this size and shape would have been typical for amunition for a SAKER cannon. The Saker is a medium sized cannon developed during the early 16th century AD. The barrel of the Saker was typically 2.9m long and weighed approximately 860kg. Recent experiments in France have shown that the range of round shot fired from the Saker was over 2.5km (when fired at a 45degree angle). The cannon balls from the saker were designed not to explode on impa…

County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Post Medieval cast iron cannon ball. It is spherical with a distinct casting seam and rough mould vent sprue mark on one side. It is 49.3mm, 1.95 inches in diameter and weighs 440 grams, 15.5 ounces. Historic sources in the late 16th and early 17th century suggest 'falconet' cannons shot balls of 2 inch diameter weighing between 1lb 2 ounces and 1lb 4 ounces. This ball is therefore probably for a cannon of that type and dates to the late 16th to 17th centuries. There was always some variation in cannons and the balls they used at the time and this example may also have lost so…

Cast lead cannon ball with a diameter of 48.33mm. The object is circular, but with some pieces missing (the biggest of which is a long gash that measures 28.5mm long, 8.4mm wide and and 5 mm deep) which causes the shape to be irregular. There are many other dents and pits in the surface, which are also filled with dirt. Probably dates from the post-medieval period.

A probable cast iron cannon ball dating from the post Medieval period around 1500-1700AD. It is small in size suggesting it could have been used in a Rabinet, the smallest of the English Standard Sizes of cannon. These type of cannons were used in the 17th century (Blackmore 1990 Arms and Armour of the English Civil Wars, Royal Armouries p. 83). It has a diameter of 36.70mm, weight 193.7g. A similar example is SUSS-CA5D04 on the PAS database.

A small, cast iron probable cannon ball dating from the Post Medieval period. The object would have been spherical, but corrosion is now distorting this. It is closest to the bore size for a Falconet cannon, but is rather lighter than the official weight. This may also be due to corrosion, or the ball may in fact be from a rolling mill. It probably dates from 1500 - 1800 AD.

A small, cast iron probable cannon ball dating from the Post Medieval period. The object would have been spherical, but corrosion is now distorting this slightly. It is closest to the bore size for a Serpentine cannon, but is rather lighter than the official weight. This may also be due to corrosion, or the ball may in fact be from a rolling mill. It probably dates from 1500 - 1800 AD.

A possible cannon ball made from cast iron. It is spherical and is 42.1mm in diameter. It weighs 271g (9.5 oz). The surface of the ball is corroded and flaking. A cannon ball weighing 8ozs was fired from a Robinet cannon and this may be for a similar size cannon. These type of cannons were used in the 17th century (Blackmore 1990 Arms and Armour of the English Civil Wars, Royal Armouries p. 83).

A chipped stone cannonball, probably of 16th or 17th century date. The ball is sub-spherical, chipped from a sandstone with pecked marks visible on the surface. Approximately one-third of the surface has a sooty, blackened surface, suggesting that it was fired from a cannon or powder-based artillery piece. This object is one of three examples found in the same area.
