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…

Iron ball found in garden in grounds of Old County Gaol, Montgomery, near archway now converted into accommodation. Size conforms to shot for a 17th century falconette light cannon. Found well inside Battle of Montgomery possible bombardment area. HOWEVER, has an unusual rectangular casting mark, or the remains of a bar. It was found in an area of considerable disturbance and may be a broken fragment of a 19th century artefact, perhaps associated with the gaol.

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). …
