I'm in the process of rebuilding it elsewhere because geocities is shutting down. The Spanish guns on my site were recovered from the treasure ship Atocha which sank off Florida in 1622. Heres a little history on the ship http://www.atocha.com/atocha_history.php
Nicely done Searcher! Great site, and thank you for the link to the Atocha, one of the true pinnacles of nautical archaeology and history of Spain's new world.
I would like to welcome you here and look forward to your contributions in the ever growing and valuable material on these weapons.
All the very best,
