  • New results from this summer's survey of the site of the shipwreck were presented on Tuesday.

  • Martin Jakobsson, a professor of marine geology and geophysics at Stockholm University, was the lead scientist of the "pre-survey" of the wreck site and collected data for the report.

  • Jakobsson told Radio Sweden "What has been discussed is if the bedrock in itself, after the ship hit the sea floor, caused the holes."
