Ordnance & Artillery of All Periods

MEDIEVAL CANNON CASTING

The Ho Group, an experimental archaeology group who meet in Denmark and who are committed to research into early artillery and gunpowder, announce their latest, exciting, venture and have invited Ordnance Society members to participate.

 Their latest project is to construct a replica of a late medieval reverberatory furnace and cast cannon as close as possible to late medieval and early modern methods and techniques. To this end, they have built an experimental small-scale reverberatory furnace using early 16th century documentation and have invited us to the first, experimental, casting in May 2019.
