Update: 'Finding the Vasa Cannon'

In April 2018, we reported about the project related to the search for the lost ‘Vasa Cannon’. Field research of the wreck location of the Vasa almost certainly revealed one of these missed cannons.

Read all about in the attached article from Svenska Dagbladet.



Vasa is the world’s most visited maritime exhibit. The Swedish ship sank on her first sailing in Stockholm harbour on 10 August 1628. The ship was fitted with 64 cannons. When she was salvaged in 1961 only three of these were found. The other 61 are still missing, one of which could still be lying at the bottom of Stockholm harbour.


The Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands is one of the Dutch participants in the search for the cannon.
