Record ID: WMID-D36184
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.

The diameter and weight suggest that the type of cannon used to fire the cannon ball may have been the Demi-Culverin. This cannon had a 4 inch bore and fired a ball weighing 9.5 lb (4309 g).
