Researchers Were Excited To Find Brain Tissue

Not only did the archaeologists find clothes and everyday items that were reflective of the ship’s crew members, but they also found substantial evidence of the crew members themselves!

The remains of two crew members were found in the wreck and one of their skulls even contained remains of brain tissue. While 800 or so men lost their lives when the Kronan sunk, only about 40 other men were lucky enough to survive.
