The Great Guns Like Thunder


The Cannon From the City Of Derry

SKU: 10-1 Category:


The cast-iron guns of the ‘Maiden City’ survived turbulent times. At a most basic level, they are ponderous lumps of cast iron, made to wreak death and destruction. But step back a little, and their elegant forms and delicate mouldings contradict the intent of their users ……. cast-iron cannon came from an industrial complex spanning the mining of iron ores, construction of charcoal-hungary blast furnaces, and the making of the clay moulds into which the molten metal was poured. These cannon are on the City Walls and this book tells how they were deployed and used.
