Abstract [en]

The 84-gun ship Riksapplet was one of the first ships in Sweden built under supervision of the newly recruited English master. In 1676, the ship came adrift, struck a rock and sank. In 2015 a minor field survey of the wreck was undertaken. An inventory of finds recovered from the wreck in various museum collections and in private hands has been compiled and the preserved correspondence from the construction of the ship has been re-examined. This material has provided new insights regarding the peculiarities and special architecture of Riksapplet.

Abstract [sv]

Skeppet Riksäpplet och introduktionen av engelskt skeppsbyggeri i Sverige under 1600-talet

84-kanonersskeppet Riksäpplet var ett av de första som byggdes av de nyrekryterade engelska skeppsbyggmästarna I Sverige. I juni 1676 slet sig skeppet från sina förtöjningar vid Dalarö i Stockholms skärgård. År 2015 företogs en mindre fältundersökning på vrakplatsen. Vid sidan av en inventering av de fynd som tidigare bärgats från vraket, vilka nu finns spridda på olika museer och i privata samlingar, har även det skriftliga källmaterialet genomlästs på nytt. Detta har bidragit till nya insikter rörande Riksäpplets arkitektur.
