After loading, a fuse was inserted and lit and then the whole thing was fired off in a mortar. . . . . "This is an extremely rare and very interesting find," said senior consultant Britt-Alise Hjelmeland, who has the responsibility for antiquarian maintenance of Akershus Fortress.The bomb has some melting on each side of the powder hole, which indicates that it has been fired. From its age it could stem from the final attack by Sweden's Karl XII on the fortress in 1716, though he had little heavy artillery with him on that campaign, Hjelmeland said.Linkback: You are not allowed to view links.Please Register or Loginhttp://www.thunting.com/smf/index.php/topic,1532.msg12933.html#msg12933
