They Believe It Was Roquefort
No one working on the Kronan site could believe their eyes – or their noses. It was amazing that a product like cheese lasted well over 300 years at the bottom of the ocean.
“It looks a bit like some kind of granular Roquefort cheese. It’s been in the mud, so it’s reasonably well preserved, but at the same time it has been at the bottom of the sea for 340 years,” Einarsson said.
