(The Griffin-Hound),

sunk in 1495,

is possibly the best preserved

15th century warship in the world.

Probably built in the Netherlands

with timber from France,

used by the Danish king on travels

to England, Norway and Sweden,

it is truly an international shipwreck.

Since it is carvel built,

it can also give important clues

to the ship building techniques

used by the great explorers,

Columbus and Vasco da Gama
