Artillery Through the Ages
A Short Illustrated History of Cannon...  

The cannon of the late 1600s (and well into the 1700s) was an ornate masterpiece
of the foundryman's art, covered with escutcheons, floral relief, scrolls, and
heavy moldings...

Many guns were personalized with names cast in raised letters on the gun.
Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida, has a 4-pounder "San Marcos,"
and, indeed, saints' names were not uncommon on Spanish ordnance.

Other typical names were El Espanto (The Terror), El Destrozo (The Destroyer),
El Toro (The Bull), and El Belicoso (The Quarrelsome One).

We have linked  hundreds of websites here that are related to cannons and shipwreck salvage. 

We hope that you enjoy them!
