Finding skirmishes and firearm practice sites through lead shot

Suggested period: POST MEDIEVAL

Single bullets or musket balls usually cannot be dated, but the overall characteristics of large groups can usually suggest a date. Checking the calibres of shot found and recorded over years within single fields could reveal unrecorded Civil War skirmish sites, or later target-practice sites. This would perhaps best be done at parish level to begin with; a useful comparative case study would be Easton Maudit, in Foard 2008.
