Large stone cannonball from a Spanish Armada wreck (1588). 10,030 grams, 8" diameter. Recovered off the coast of Belgium near the Battle of Gravelines, an important engagement between Spanish and English fleets during the attempted Spanish invasion of England in 1588, this rare, somewhat larger-than-usual (as from a siege cannon "bombard") artifact shows some sea water effects and encrustations with a small, old fracture crack from impact. Great for display. With photo-certificate.
