Henrietta Marie Cannon Tampion 92.01.0064 3D Model
This tampion is a plug from the muzzle of a cannon recovered from the wreck of the 1700 slave ship Henrietta Marie. It was designed to keep out water and debris out of the gun’s bore so it wouldn’t corrode or foul. The fact that the cannon was plugged is an indicator that it was idle and not readied for firing. The piece is made of wood, and it is approximately 6.7 centimeters in diameter and 3.4 cm thick. It has a knot of hemp twine protruding from its inside face, a remnant of the cord that was used to pull it out of the cannon. The exterior face of the tampion is deteriorated.
