Six warships from 17th and 18th centuries identified outside Karlskrona

Maritime archaeologists at the Museum of Wrecks recently explored and identified six shipwrecks at the bottom of Blekinge’s archipelago. The ships were sunk in the Djupasund strait outside the strategic naval city of Karlskrona to protect the city and prevent attacks by sea. These amazing wrecks will be part of a planned dive park at Karlskrona, a designated World Heritage Site.

1,000-year-old underwater barrier discovered in Blekinge

A previously unknown barrier installation, made of timber carved in the winter of 1113, has been discovered near Karlskrona in Blekinge. Thousands of wooden piles were driven into the seabed, and during the late Viking Age and early Middle Ages defended the entrance to the river Lyckebyån in what was then Denmark. The church, the king and the local elite all wanted to gain control over the area, and the barrier likely played a vital role in preventing intruders from coming ashore, perhaps to plunder or disrupt crucial iron exporting along the river.

Shipwrecks outside Vaxholm discovered to be from the early 17th century

The results are in. Wood samples from the two large warships found in November by divers outside the island of Vaxholm have now been analysed. The wood samples, taken from the ships’ massive oak planks, confirm assumptions by maritime archaeologists at the Vrak – Museum of Wrecks that the ships were built in the first half of the 17th century.
