The discovery of a 250-year old Indonesian swivel gun in Australia could rewrite the country’s history.
The weapon was found on a remote Northern Territory beach after it had laid on the seabed for over two centuries.
Scientists claim the gun could be evidence of a foreign explorer on Australian shores before Captain Cook landed in Australia in 1770.
A local boy, Christopher Doukas, found the 107cm-long artillery gun buried in sand of Dundee beach in 2010 during an unusually low tide.
If he plays it right, that boy could sell the gun for a lot of money. Or will the Australian government confiscate it because he didn’t have a license for it?
