    I recently purchased on ebay a cannonball salvaged from the wreck of the Association, Sir Cloudesley Shovell’s flagship that was lost with all hands in 1707. I know that numerous artifacts were salvaged in the 1960s and some of the items were auctioned at Sotheby’s in 1969. It came with a wooden stand that appears to be quite old. I am unsure whether the wood of this stand could have been an actual part of the Association, or would time and tide have destroyed all wooden parts of the ship, or indeed whether any wood should have been considered worth salvaging. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Charles,

    Do you have a photograph of the cannonball and stand?
