Vasa History

The Salvage

To salvage a 300 year old ship from the sea bed was something few thought possible. It was a dramatic and complex technical effort, so how did they do it?

Ongoing research: the skeletons from Vasa

During the salvage of Vasa the bones of at least 17 people were recovered. Through various analyzes we can dress the skeletons in new dimensions, that gives us knowledge about the life in the 17th century.
