    Default Cannon Ball?

    Hi all, I know this may be out of the general time period the forum covers but I was wondering if anyone with more experience than myself could positively ID this as a cannon ball? It is roughly 4.5in in diameter and is quite heavy, i'm guessing might be a 12pdr? Unfortunatly I did not find it myself so I do not know its origins for sure, but possibly English Civil War period?

    Many Thanks.

    This might not be a cannonball,go on google and type in ...ball mill...this is a rotating machine with these balls in it to crush rock,they are common in the mining industry.

    I think Zwerge might be right, it looks to be in way too good condition to have been laying there for so long.
