Bodekull (The Dalarö wreck)
The Dalarö wreck is one of the world’s best preserved 17th-century wrecks, lying at about 30 metres depth by Edesön off Dalarö. It was discovered in 2003 by the Marine Culture Society, and archaeologists from the Swedish Maritime Museum have investigated the site together with specialists from the University of Southampton and Södertörn University. Although it is a fairly small ship, about 20 meters long, with a hold and six gun ports, its silhouette is similar to the larger warships. On and around the wreck are many objects – pottery, glass bottles, tools, handweapons, parts of the rigging, and baskets and crates. On the bottom rests the figurehead, depicting a roaring lion on its hind legs. Two masts are still standing.
In 2017, the ship was probably identified as Bodekull, a small frigate.
In june 2017, Bodekull was documented for 3D-rendering within the EU Interreg Central baltic Project Baltacar. https//www.facebook.com/ProjectBALTACAR/
