The Great Guns of Barbados

100.00 BBD

This fascinating book of genuine historical significance not only describes this extraordinary collection of rare 17th Century English Iron Guns but also explains why and how they ended up in Barbados, a small island in the Caribbean. The Barbados cannon collection is now recognized internationally as the finest collection of 17th Century English Iron Guns to be found anywhere in the world. Many of them are very rare. Why are there so many rare guns on the small island of Barbados, which in itself measures only 21 miles in length and 14 miles in width? The answer is that its geographical position to the East of the main stream of Caribbean Islands made it the most strategically placed Island of them all.
