You never know what construction workers will dig up on a job.

This recently from Burgess, South Carolina. Workers digging up a part of a highway came across this interesting find, Sadly, the trailer used for moving it was not quite up to the job. It appears to be a nice plump Rodman Gun no idea of Bore size, but can guess it’s the 10 in. Bore, which weighed in at about 7-1/2 tons. They were made in sizes ranging from 8" to 20" bore. It’s in fairly good shape for a dug-up. Hope that the foundry markings are still readable, that would reveal where it was sent, and perhaps how it came to be buried in that spot.
