This is a cast iron Post Medieval cannon ball, perhaps from the 17th or 18th century. The ball is consistent with the size of cannon known as a Falcon. Although various weights and size tables can be found for the Falcon, this ball at 2 pounds and around 2.5 inches in diameter is consistent with the type. The ball has a clear cast line around the circumference and a casting spru is evident at 90 degrees to the casting line. The Falcon was a modest cannon, around six foot in length with a level range of around 200 yards. An interesting find when associated with its find location n…

An Iron cannon ball probably dating from the Civil War period. The ball is approximately 5 - 6 cm in diameter and weighs just over 3lb. The size and weight suggest that it is likely to be post medieval rather than Victorian, but it is very difficult to be certain.

Cannon ball of post-medieval (probably English Civil War) date (1600-1700AD). The cannonball is sub-spherical with a diameter of 78.7mm (3 inches 1/8). It weighs 1.8 kilograms (4lbs). It is made of iron which has been presumably cast, although there is no evidence of a seam or casting flange. The ball is of a mid-brown orange colour with areas of flaking and active corrosion. The cannon ball is in fairly good condition; however, there are a number of areas which exhibit pitting, denting, and grazes. This might suggest either use or, more likely, damage in the soil. The size of the …

A cast iron Post Medieval cannon ball with prominent middle seam. The ball has a diameter of 3.2 inches (81.3mm), a circumference of 10 inches (255mm) and weighs 4.5-4 lbs (1.5-1.82 Kg). The ball would have been used as ammunition for a 'Minion' or more probably a 'Saker' cannon, both of which were in common usage during the English Civil War. The Saker for example had a calibre of 3.25 inches with a barrel approximately 9.5 ft (2.9m) long. It had a range approaching 7400 ft (2.3 km) but was used to bounce shot along the ground to cause as much damage as possible. Circa 1650 AD.
