Abstract [en]

In 1971 the remains of an old shipwreck were found in shallow water inside the island of Stora Ekön, south of the town of Ronneby in southern Sweden, but it was not until 2000 that archaeologists observed that it was in fact the remains of a large medieval ship. Several underwater archaeological surveys have been carried out at the site and the recovered artefacts are preserved at Blekinge county museum. Wood samples from the wreck was dated to 1483 and in connection the wreck was identified as the remains of King Hans large warship Gribshunden, which sank in the Blekinge archipelago in 1495 on its way from Copenhagen to Kalmar. In 2013 renewed surveys at the wrecksite were initiated through the project “Ships at War” at Södertörn University. Through these surveys it could be stated that Gribshunden resembles one of the state of the art, specially built warships that was introduced in this period. These ships were extremely expensive and very rare already in the 15th century. The survey also showed that much of this important ship still is preserved. The text is based on a lecture for the Swedish Society for Maritime History on 21 November 2018.
