Book release: Preserve Vasa
Emma Hocker, who used to work at the Vasa Museum with the conservation of the Vasa Ship, have written a new book about all the challenges involved with preserving Vasa.
In April 1961, Vasa was raised from the waters of Stockholm harbour having sunk on her maiden voyage in 1628. Conservation and reconstruction of the ship has proven to be a great challenge during almost 30 years before the ship was placed on permanent display in the purpose-built Vasa Museum where it remains today.
The new book by Emma Hocker documents hos this huge ship survived the forces of decay ad what needs to be done to preserve the ship for future generations.
