An earlier 16th century ship from Age Of Discovery was found in the depth of Baltic Sea.

The best preserve shipwreck ever found from the age of Christopher Columbus and Vasco da Gama has been discovered which is at the bottom of the Baltic Sea between Sweden and Estonia.

The newly discovered Baltic Mary Celeste is also at the heart of a 500 year old maritime mystery.

For all intents and purposes unblemished condition,the vessel has been situate by archeologists at a profundity of around in excess of 120 meters somewhere in the range of 100 miles South East of Stockholm.

Approximately 99 percent of the ship is flawless, with the poles as yet standing tall and its two swivel weapons in their discharging positions.

Presumably a little Swedish or Danish galleon, the vessel was almost certainly build at some stage between 1490 and 1540, most likely in the very early 16th century.

It is in this way possible that it was sink during Sweden’s war of autonomy, the multi year long clash between that nation and its Danish rulers which somewhere in the range of 1521 and 1523. On the other hand the vessel may have been sink during the Russo-Swedish War of 1554 – 1557.
