Three cannons, which likely witnessed many chapters in St. John’s history, were uncovered on Cruz Bay Beach this week by Public Works Department crews cleaning the beach.

“It’s really amazing they were able to remain undetected all these years,” said Sean Krigger, acting director of the Planning and Natural Resources Department’s State Historic Preservation Office.

He said Wednesday that one of the workers first spotted the signature flare of a cannon’s barrel and that further digging uncovered the other two. Krigger said the cannons were removed from the beach and remain in a secure place.
