The 17th century was not a good time to be a mariner in Sweden. Important ships seemed to be sinking left and right. I’ve written about the Vasa (discovered and raised in the 1960s) and the Mars which was just discovered last year.
Now, reports are indicating that another important wreck has been discovered. The Resande Man was carrying royal treasure to Poland when bad weather sent it to the bottom. The brackish water of the Baltic Sea is pretty good at preserving shipwrecks so it’ll be interesting to see how much of the ship is intact and what’s on board.
