Some giant lost his marbles maybe? Where is this taken? Old stone cannonballs in a gully?

An old fortification in the Middle East.

Exactly... in a dry moat, between two walls.

Sorry for ruining what may have been some impressive guesses! A bit too much of a military historian I guess!

Like the pix and the inclusion of the men to give an idea of size.

Do you recall what the name of the fortress was/is ?

I'm glad you did. It would be fascinating to know the history of that fortress, when those balls were fired...you know the old W5.

If these cannonballs are stone and chiseled/shaped from less round stone....the history of how they were shaped, how long it would take to get them to this point would be of interest.

No sorry... my memory is not the greatest and besides they all look pretty the same ish, also very similar to ones all over the Mediterranean too.
