(Update Sept 19 - I've now found upward of 200 musket balls due to new season detecting on the land this year) During the English Civil War in1646, Raglan Castle was besieged by parliamentarian forces. The Castle was inthe ownership of Henry, Earl of Worcester who was a staunch Royalist. He garrisoned Raglan castle with as many as 800 soldiers at his own expense. By June 1646, the castle was under siege, having been first attacked by an army under the command of Colonel Morgan and Sir Trevor Williams, who were later joined by additional forces under General Thomas Fairfax. The Marques surrendered the castle after a long siege. He was arrested and sent to Windsor Castle, where he eventually died. Presented in a lovely clear container with accompanying card with an image of myself finding one of the musket balls, with the castle in the background and on the reverse displaying the above explanatory text. Musket ball in image is 1 of over 100 found and the musket ball you will receive will vary from 12mm to 19mm in width.
