A hotel renovation site made a fantastic discovery in the oldest portside in Oulu, a shipwreck, partially in full shape, from 1600, probably built in Pikisaari where I live. Museum people told that old ships were just left to rot away to the side of harbor. Luckily the hotel people were as thrilled as everyone else, and promised to show part of the ship later in their lobby. This ship here is accompanied by the shadow shape of her when the life above water is over.
