  • Description

    Thursday the 27th of April was the most sensational day in the whole salvage of the old warship Vasa. The long expected moment, when the ship would rise above the surface and expose itself became reality.

    For the present, the Gun-deck is not only visible but lies about one meter above the surface, totally available for the archaeologists who are occupied washing a series of interesting and unique finds. Already, about 25 sculptures and details of equipment have been taken care of, since the ship broke the surface. Earlier, several thousand finds were made during the location-diving for the final lift.
