Object type: SHOT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: York
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead-alloy musket ball or pistol shot of Post-Medieval date, c.1600 - 1900. The object is spherical with a faint casting line around the circumference. A flat spot is present to one side of the object which may indicate impact or be the result of ramming into a weapon. Diameter: 13.1mm; Weight: 12.1g. It is difficult to precisely assign projectiles to specific calibres of gun because most excavated shot will have lost weight, there was a huge variety of firearms and balls imperfectly manufactured, and because lead varies in weight. The weight of the shot suggests they may …
