The ancient bullets, which were found buried underneath the ground in an adjacent field, are thought to have been shot from a carbine rifle.
Mike Lang Hall, an archaeologist for Optimise, which is working on behalf of Thames Water, said: “This has been a very exciting find and it really is quite rare to find a collection of bullets like this dating back so many centuries in such an urbanised area.
