One of his Majesty’s ‘Beste Kraffwells’: the wreck of an early carvel-built ship at Franska Stenarna, Sweden
Adams, Jonathan and Rönnby, Johan (2013) One of his Majesty’s ‘Beste Kraffwells’: the wreck of an early carvel-built ship at Franska Stenarna, Sweden. International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, 42, (1), 103-117. (doi:10.1111/j.1095-9270.2012.00355.x).
We report recent fieldwork on an early sixteenth century wreck in the Stockholm archipelago, Sweden. The discovery not only provides new insights into early carvel shipbuilding and its adoption across northern Europe but manifests the changing role of ships and the nature of power and agency in the process of state formation at the dawn of the modern world.
