i found them via google, i am assuming the wooden mold is recent and they have not been polishing old bullets. they are representative of other ancient ones tho. experimental archaeology.
a more thorough googling found a bunch of better and somewhat older examples: acorn & whistlers, old thumbs, scorpio & bird (?), flower power, and a horde of roman shot found in situ near a scottish hill fort, Burnswark Hill, in the Dumfries region of southwest Scotland, that they were attacking.
