    Sorry if i've posted in the wrong place. Just had a few days in Berlin for the tattoo convention and visited Spandau for the Christmas market, while wandering around the old town i spotted the cannon ball embedded in the wall of St Nickolai church. I gather by the date it was something to do with the Napoleonic invasion.Click image for larger version.
