Culture Minister Vira Rojpojchanarat on Wednesday visited Thailand’s National Museum in Bangkok to observe the preservation process for the ancient cannon unearthed from beneath Sanam Luang last weekend.

The 3-metre gun was used in war during the early Rattanakosin era.

Museum director Nitaya Kanokmongkol said |that the process of preservation could take months, and visitors will be able to get a close-up look at how it’s done.

 The museum will also soon host a lecture on the ancient cannon.
