My dad's general contracting company is doing some work on an old munitions plant from WWII located near Childersburg, AL. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabama_Army_Ammunition_Plant)
This plant produced different types of gunpowder and heavy water during the war.
He's found about 20 of these so far, thought they were interesting and wanted more information about them. They're cast iron and have a diameter of about 8 inches.
As you can tell, I don't know much, so anything you can tell me would be helpful. Thanks!
