World's Largest Bell to Be Raised from a Burmese River

Story here. The 520-year-old Dhammazedi Bell. At least, they think it’s the world’s largest. A Singaporean firm will soon make the latest in a series of attempts to dredge it up from a river, where it fell off a raft 400 years ago.

If it really is 290 tons of copper, gold, silver and tin alloy as believed, then it will outweigh the 128-ton Moscow Bell, now considered the heaviest.

What? You mean the World’s Largst Bell wasn’t The Mother of Voices from the 1964 movie The Long Ships*?;_ylt=A0PDoS8XhRlQvAcAOBuJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?;_ylt=A0PDoX3NhRlQ61cANZWJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?
*and, of course, Frans Bengtsson’s book.

No, probably not. :wink:

Maybe it’s a Diving Bell.

I wonder who it tolls for.

Ask not.

Too late. He already Donne it.

Too bad it wasn’t. I had my hopes up that they might also find the Steel Mare.:eek:

You can take the first ride.
