    71 holed musket balls in the same hole

    Took about an hour to get all of these holed musket balls out of one hole. The first one found was about 6 deep. The last one found ended up being about 24 deep. There was nothing else in the hole. Maybe someone dropped a fishing net?

    I think those are fishing weights. What is the diameter?

    I agree. Fishing net weights. Dug a bunch of them in the Caribbean.

    Good catch, but some what a sinker to the musket ball theory.

    Yeah. I think someone dropped a large fishing net with all of these weights on it.
