The small leather ball stuffed with dried grass was found with a cylindrical container of mason's tools in a house in Manse Street. The ball is 45mm in diameter. On the museum database, it is listed as a "fives" ball which was a popular game in the nineteenth century but the ball would seem to lack the necessary hardness for either fives or golf. Anybody any ideas?
