A ball and chain was a physical restraint device historically applied to prisoners, primarily in the British Empire and its former colonies, from the 17th century until as late as the mid-20th century. A ball and chain believed to date to the 17th century was found in the United Kingdom in 2009. It consists of a sphere of high-grade iron approximately 15 centimetres (5.9 in) across and weighing around 8 kilograms (18 lb). The chain is of some 90 centimetres (35 in) in length and terminates in a leg iron or shackle. The weight of the ball makes it difficult for the restrained person to walk.

  • Un boulet de forçat est une entrave historiquement utilisée sur des prisonniers, en premier dans l'Empire britannique et ses colonies, du XVIIe siècle jusqu'au milieu du XXe siècle. Le poids du boulet empêche la personne de marcher aisément. Un boulet datant probablement du XVIIe siècle a été découvert au Royaume-Uni en 2009 ; c'est une sphère de fer de bonne qualité d'environ 15 cm de diamètre pour un poids de 8 kg. La chaine mesure 90 cm de long et se termine par une manille ou des menottes de pieds.
