This Dutch cannon was excavated from the reclaimed Haarlemmermeer in the second half of the 19th century. It may have been used during the Battle of Haarlemmermeer in 1573. The wooden support on which the cannon is mounted with six wrought-iron bands can swivel on an iron pin, allowing for greater accuracy in shooting at enemy ships.
