They Weren’t Sure What To Expect

It took nearly 300 years for the Kronan to make headlines again. In 1980, Swedish naval archaeologist Anders Franzén, who was also a marine technician, located Kronan’s exact location on the ocean floor.

At 85 feet deep, she was just four miles east of the town of Hulterstad in Öland, Sweden. Franzén and his team weren’t sure what to expect when they found her, but Kronan was apparently hiding a lot.

The first findings were a testament to how powerful Kronan really was in her heydey.
