    I'd guess 17th to 18th Century. After the beginning of the 19th century, technology improved. Looks like a naval piece.

    1700's . Early casting, looks like the muzzle was cracked or hit by shot?

    Hello everybody

    I think it's from an American schooner sunk in 1780. Can it be an English or Swedish cannon?

    I remember hearing somewhere that the more rings on a cannon the older it is.
