3 ships found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea

Vessels look as if they have “just been abandoned”

Danish researchers have discovered three well-preserved shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea, which are estimated to be more than 300 years old, DPA reported, citing the Naval War Museum in Tiboron, Jutland.

Two of the vessels were almost certainly Dutch cargo ships, while the third and largest was probably Scandinavian, the museum said.

All three ships were found at a depth of about 150 meters.

“It was fantastic to see the ships on the screen when we sent an underwater robot with a camera on the seabed,” said expedition leader and museum director Gert Norman Andersen, adding that the vessels looked as if they had “just been abandoned”.

Unlike in the North Sea, where any shipwreck would disintegrate in record time, in the Baltic Sea shipwrecks are often well preserved, Andersen said.

The reason is that neither the so-called shipworms (a type of clam) nor other wood borers can live so deep in the Baltic Sea, where the environment is acidic and low in oxygen.

Danish Baltic Sea expedition from Sea War Museum Jutland finds intact 300 year old shipwrecks at great depths. Here is a 3D video of one of the ships called the Cannon Ship.
