The preliminary restoration work is currently underway and, according to Peets, there is even a chance that three of the guns may become functional, wrote Meie Maa.
The cannons, currently lined up in front of the castle, date to the 18th and 19th centuries. “All of them were used in battles,” said Peets, adding that at one point they became unusable for battlefield combat, which is why they were brought to the garrison.
