To discover a ship with a reputation and historical value as the
Svärdet would indeed be a major marine archeological breakthrough
and would once again prove the Baltic seas unprecedented treasures
in marine historical heritage. The general public has shown a huge
interest in these old ships and the Wasa museum has to this date
been visited by 90 million persons. The Kronan museum in Kalmar
is also popular, drawing a huge public every year. Numerous TV documentaries
have aired over the world.
What we intend to contribute with is simply to ad even more thrills to the public by giving them the true hero Clas Uggla´s mighty admiralship "Svärdet" that was sent to the bottom after hours of intense and furious naval battle totally surrounded by numerous Danish and Dutch battleships. We intend to find the wreck site and by using video give the public a rare opportunity to step right into the events of the disastrous first day of June 1676 and the fate of the famous admiral ship.
