Volunteer Adam Ziegler found an iron ball while volunteering to help archaeologists uncover remnants of a Native American settlement east of Arkansas City, Kan., in June. The ball was fired by a Spanish cannon at ancestors of the Wichita tribe, who ambushed an expedition led by Don Juan de Onate in 1601, according to Don Blakeslee, an archaeologist who led a study of the site.
