“In mid-May 2012, we are preparing an expedition with more sophisticated sonars, cameras and other equipment to hopefully determine what these strange objects are and if it is safe to try a dive to them.”

March 30, 2012 Stockholm, Sweden - The Baltic Sea is a good preservative. The salt content is low and there are no wood-burrowing organisms. Andreas Olsson, Head of Archaeology at the Swedish Maritime Museum, estimates there could be 20,000 ship wrecks on the Baltic Sea floor. “It's like a ship wreck laboratory - the best in the world” where the cold, dark water has preserved sunken objects for centuries.
