A unique find in Ukraine - the preserved carriage of the field or siege cannon of the XVIII century - raised from the waters of the Dnieper near Khortytsya island. News article

Broadside: Emerging Empires Collide


This docu-drama is recommended by a reader Scott in Indiana. 

Throughout the 17th century, the Dutch and English fought a series of deadly and costly wars over which country would dominate world trade for the next two centuries. They waged massive sea battles in Europe and embarked on violent raids from Asia to Africa and North America. This dramatic film takes its name from warships that were armed with lines of cannons and guns on each side of the hull.
