STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN—Low water levels along Stockholm’s waterfront have revealed the hulls of two historic wrecks, thought to be seventeenth-century Danish warships. “If it had only been one or two beams sticking up, I may not have noticed it. But I saw immediately that it was a shipwreck. You could clearly see the bow and the stern,” said marine archaeologist Jim Hansson of Stockholm’s Maritime Museum. He spotted the wrecks while out for a walk with his girlfriend. Samples of the vessels have been taken for testing.
