The Vasa Ship

Every now and then, I think about the Vasa warship and its very impressive museum in Stockholm.

The Vasa has been buried underwater for over 333 years; preserving a sunken 17th century ship in a dry medium is a race against time.
Thinking about how people have perished in there always gives me the heebie-jeebies.

    1. You should. I was in awe; it's something plucked right out of history.
