  • The Sinking of the Vasa

    27 FEB. 2024 · For ad-free listening, subscribe to the Into History Podcast Channel, at https://www.intohistory.com/shipwreckspod. The Vasa was a massive warship commissioned by King Gustav II Adolph of Sweden in the early 17th century. Designed to be the pride of the Swedish Navy, construction began in 1626 at the Royal Shipyard in Stockholm, under the supervision of master shipwright Henrik Hybertsson. The Vasa was intended to be a symbol of Sweden's military power and ambition in the Baltic region, with a total of 64 guns arranged on two decks. Its design incorporated the latest advancements in naval architecture, including a sleek hull and a high concentration of firepower. However, the Vasa's inaugural voyage was marked by tragedy. On August 10, 1628, the ship set sail from Stockholm's harbor amid great fanfare. But just minutes into the journey, a gust of wind caught the ship's sails, causing it to roll precariously. Water began to rush in through the open gun ports, and the ship quickly sank to the bottom of the harbor. It was a devastating loss for Sweden, with over 30 crew members perishing in the disaster. The Vasa lay submerged for over three centuries, until it was rediscovered in the 1950s and eventually salvaged in 1961. Today, the Vasa is one of Sweden's most popular tourist attractions, attracting millions of visitors each year to the Vasa Museum in Stockholm.

  • The Final Voyage of SS Atlantic

    2 ENE. 2024 · For ad-free access to Shipwrecks and Sea Dogs and other history podcasts, subscribe to Into History at https://www.intohistory.com/shipwreckspod. Special guest: Maritime historian Kirby Ross. The SS Atlantic disaster occurred on April 1, 1873, when the British steamship SS Atlantic, carrying over 900 passengers and crew, struck rocks off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. The ship was en route from Liverpool, England, to New York City but faced severe weather conditions and navigational errors that led to its tragic demise. The impact caused the vessel to quickly sink, resulting in the loss of around 550 lives, making it one of the deadliest maritime disasters of its time. Despite rescue efforts by local residents, the combination of rough seas, inadequate life-saving equipment, and the remote location of the wreck contributed to the high death toll, leaving a haunting legacy in maritime history.
