The narrow and shallow waterway has a fascinating ancient history
This has been one of the routes between the Baltic Sea and Stockholm, and on August 13, 1719, a fleet of Russian galleys was sighted outside of Skogsö. For some time the Russians had been ravaging the archipelago and the galleys of Tsar Peter I were now threatening Stockholm. Their disembarkation at Skogsö led to the Battle of Stäket.
Two hundred and fifty years later the new suburb of Fisksätra was built in Nacka. This became Sweden’s most densely populated area with people from a great number of different nations.
HAMN tells this story, beginning in the 4th century, displaying finds from the Viking era and the 18th century, and also from recent times with the stories of today’s multicultural settlement.
The excavations of the battlefield have provided new knowledge about our history.
A number of people have helped us interpret the history of the area through the finds; marine and battlefield archaeologists, numismatists, osteologists, archivists, historians, curators and other experts. At the museum you will see their results together with the finds.
