Location: Bavaria, Germany - the center of 15th and 16th century gunmaking
A Bundle and Lengths of 17th C. Matchcord, Armémuseum Stockholm
The bundle on top weighs 3.4 kg and might measure 10 m in length.
Simliar to the images I posted before, the close-ups allow to study the characteristic fibrous structure of match rope.
And a detached matchlock mechanism, Swedish, 1620's.
