The Swedish East India Company
Did you know that the Swedish East India Company, founded in 1731, was one of Sweden’s most successful companies in history? The Company made the small country of Sweden part of a big world through the profitable trading trips with the East Indiamen to China. The city of Gothenburg flourished into a prosperous commercial centre.
A living ship
The East Indiaman Götheborg is a living ship brimming with history to be told. Since the construction of the ship, we have rediscovered knowledge and expertise on how an 18th century ship is built, sailed, and maintained. As a volunteer you get the chance to take part of this knowledge and learn the craftsmanship on board. What is required for keeping an 18th century ship in good shape? What materials were used at that time, and what is used today? The tasks are varied and can revolve around anything from taring ropes and scraping the Hull, to working in the Rigging.
