Remains from 1600s ship found near Stockholm hotel





Remains of a ship likely from the 1600s were discovered as workers renovated a hotel in central Stockholm, the Maritime Museum said.

As workers were renovating part of Stockholm's Grand Hotel, not far from the royal palace, a worker found something interesting – the discovery turned out to be excavated parts of a ship.

So archaeologists from the Maritime Museum came in to check things out – and it turns out they had quite an interesting find.

According to Sweden's The Local, the planks found outside the hotel were not held together in the traditional way - being nailed down – but instead were sewn together with ropes.

That technique, according to The Local, was not the norm, which has made the discovery even more fascinating....
