Ancient Machine Parts

In this little video, Ancient Machine Parts, we will look into a super sized Turkish cannon, said to have been built in the 1400’s. The cannon is said to weight 37,000 pounds and the cannon balls alone weighs a little over 2000 pounds. At one point in the video you will see massive threads on the end of one of the cannons and it will seem obvious that this is more likely an ancient machine part and less likely a device used in war. When it comes to the cannon balls I am less certain as to what they may be. Could they be a type of natural stone hail? Could they be remnants of an attack from above in the past? Sometimes it seems clear what something is not and this seems to be the case with the cannon ball. Let me know your thoughts.
