Re: Reply Re: -[MedievalSawdust] Vasa
I'm sorry I can't help you any more on this - the Vasa is a bit "late" for the period which is my primary re-enactment focis at the moment; so I haven't looked really closely at what the Vasa Museum has been publishing themselves,- or authorising via projects by non-Swedish Publishers/Authors.
However, I'm sure that the Vasa is a much "richer" survival than the Mary Rose, the hull having been preserved almost fully inrtact by the deep, dark, and almost sterile waters of the Baltic.
English is taught as a second language throughout most of Scandinavia, and most Swdes and Norwegians I've met have been fluent therein; - so why don't you query the Curator at the Vasa Museum?

Thanks Matthewe, A couple of those had come up when I did my original
search but several had not, I wonder if its a difference between English
Amazon and American Amazon. Or just my computer deciding to play with
my mind. A lot of the books seem to be focused on the raising and
preservation of the ship itself, and most that I have had a chance to
look at seem to give scant attention to the small finds. I was hoping
someone had seen something like the Mary Rose book "Before the Mast"
which really focuses on personal effects and small finds
