The Hunt for the Forts of New Sweden

Author(s): Craig Lukezic

Year: 2013



The remains of Fort Elfsborg may be in a modern marshland, and the remains of Fort Christina may lie underneath 150 years worth of heavy industrial occupation.  While the lore of these centers of New Sweden are currnetly alive in the people of the Delaware Valley, no remains have yet been found.  This paper is an update in the ongoing search for both structures, and the special challenges the severla teams have encountered.
