Swedish Shipwreck Kronan 126 gun man-o-war
« on: July 08, 2019, 05:22:28 AM »
All,

This morning I ran across an article about the Swedish shipwreck Kronan.  1600's and remarkably well preserved.  The image of the big guns that caught my eye is shown.  I started a new post and in the process lost the original link, so I found a couple that might fill in the gaps.  The official website has several sections one of which was "Cannon".  Follow "the finds" link to get to "the cannon" link in the first link below.

I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
