For three weeks in the fall of 2019 the royal warship Gribshunden from 1495 was excavated on the seabed of the Baltic Sea off the coast of southern Sweden. I was part of a PBS NOVA production team focusing on documenting the site with photogrammetry to create virtual excavations. Gribshunden is considered the world's best-preserved ship from the early periods of global exploration similar to what Christopher Columbus used for his expeditions to America.
Gribshunden was a warship that belonged to the Danish king John, and sank off the coast of southern Sweden after a fire on board in the summer of 1495. It was discovered by divers in the 1970s, and in 2015 the wreck's world unique figurehead—a dog-like monster—was salvaged.
