Was there a big lamp on board The Vasa?

Most ships in those days had a big lamp mounted on top of the stern. Vasa did not have one or that lamp was to fragile and therefore never been found ?



  • Hi Jan,

    thank you for your interesting question. We have found a couple of lanterns (at least three) on Vasa, but not the kind that would be on the stern. We do think there should be one lantern there, but we haven´t found any evidence for it.

    Best regards

  • Hi Emelie, thank you for the answer.I was last week at your museum,twice,and i noticed that there was no lamp.But that explains it,again thank you .
