This English carronade was built between the years 1776 & 1779 in Carontown Scotland, from which is taken the name. It was the first barrel cast in a pig iron foundry, really squat & with short range, but terribly effective during naval battles at a short distance. Two English carronades were placed on the H.M.S. Victory foredeck.
