Record ID: SWYOR-B5C9B7
Object type: MUSKET BALL
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy Post medieval musket ball, probably dating from AD 1600 - 1900. The shot is sub-spherical with one domed and one flattened face. There is a circumferential groove round the domed face, with a bulge of metal behind the groove. This may suggest that it is actually a lead bullet rather than a musket ball, and could suggest a later date. The flattened face has a shallow convave groove across it, perhaps caused by hitting a hard rounded object. The ball has a well developed yellow patina. At 12.5mm diameter and 7.97g, it was probably fired from a pistol.

An incomplete post medieval lead alloy whistle dating from AD 1700 - 1900. The whistle is cylindrical with a half cylindrical mouthpiece. Only the mouthpiece end of the whistle survives. There is a crescent-shaped sound hole at the point where the mouthpiece narrows. The cylindrical part of the tube is decorated with an abstract curvilinear design in relief lines.

A copper alloy hooked tag of Post Medieval date, probably AD 1500 - 1600. Only the lozenge shaped sheet metal plate survives. The fittings were soldered of and are now missing.

There is a silvery layer which has been applied to the top of the copper al…

A copper-alloy sword or dagger scabbard chape of early Post-Medieval date, about AD 1450 - 1600. A similar chape is illustrated by Geake (2001: illust. 31) and several comparable examples have been found in excavations in London (see Ward-Perkins 1967: 284-6). Only the cast front piece of the chape survives. It is a solid U shape. The upper third of the chape, defined by a transverse ridge at the base, is decorated with twelve circular depressions (some perforated), which serve to define the edges of three fleurs-de-lis, the tops of which protrude from the chape's upper edge.

A copper alloy S-shaped fastener or strap fitting, probably dating from the early Post-medieval period, AD 1550 - 1650, but of a style also used in the 18th century.
