    Example of type of ships bells you would be looking for


    2, 18th Century Ships Bells, 2 Ships Believed To Be Scavenged and Burned by Natives

    Probably a million to one you might find something

    12 mile search radius

    MIGHT OF BEEN USED AS A MAKESHIFT COOKING POT

    IF IT'S NOT ALREADY BURIED UNDER SOMEONES FOUNDATION, IT MAY BE BURIED IN YOUR BACKYARD?


    12 mile radius from this point

    good luck

    Best Bet would be in a 5 mile corridor North Easterly Direction to this spot, It would not be at the shore of the Bay probably at least 20 feet above Bay level and near a once available natural freshwater source.

    This spot looks interesting but probably a little past range.

    Another Example/ I said two bells but possibly 4 with a ship usually having 1 large bell and 1 smaller bell, so actually a possible 4 bells with the main larger ships bell, being the most prized of the 2 sizes.

    This bell also looks like it was used as a cooking pot at one time
