Solid cast cannon ball that is made of iron and weighs 8 lb and is 4" in diameter. Such cannon balls would most likely be used by a type of cannon called a demi-culverin. The Demi-culverin was a large artillery piece that because of its effective range and power was often used in sieges and building demolition. This cannonball particularly interesting as it comes from an area where the royalists were thought to have been encamped during the battle of Highnam in 1643
