Digital press conference: Cutting edge science reveals secrets on Gribshunden (1495)

| 1 september, 2022 | 0 kommentarer

Cutting edge science is now revealing new secrets from Gribshunden, the Danish king’s flagship which mysterically sank off the coast of Ronneby, Sweden, some 527 years ago, in 1495. Being the world’s best preseved ship from the time of Columbus and Vasco da Gama, the wreck has gained immense international attention.  

During the past two weeks a group of scientists and maritime archaologists from Lund University, Blekinge Museum and the Danish Vikingship Museum has performed excavations on the wreck. A number of objects have been salvaged and 3D-modelling of the whole ship on the bottom has been made. Sediment samples and wood samples have been collected and metal detection has been performed.

”No other ship from the time of exploration has survived this intact” says scientific leader Brendan Foley from Lund University. ”How big was the ship? How did it function? How did it sink?”

On the press conference we will tell about the campaign, the spectacularobjects, and the science made to answer the questions.
