Coastal maps and charts of the 18th century Finnish Gulf: navigation, archipelago warfare and maritime infrastructure

What do coastal maps and charts tell about navigation, archipelago warfare, wrecks and maritime infrastructure of the 18th century Finnish Gulf (Gulf)? A closer look at the maps reveals a hidden maritime infrastructure: passages, vantage points, pilot homes, secret bases for enemy (Russian) fleets at the Porkkala peninsula, land routes (draget) for hauling the galleys, beacons, small fortified islands with water reservoirs, natural harbours, windsawmills, fortresses and bold utopian-like plans for archipelago strongholds (Nordenbergs Fagerö at the Sipoo coast) etc. As an example of coastal mapping with interesting details of this kind can be mentioned e.g. the works of Jonas Hahn.

Från ersättningsmän till indelta soldater – betydelse, tradition, förändring och kontinuitet

Den av Karl XI genomförda reduktionen innehöll också en grundläggande reform inom armén: det gamla utskrivningssystemet ersattes med indelningsverk (det yngre indelningsverket) eller det ständiga knektehållet som det också kallas. Indelningverket hade många likadana drag med det gamla systemet dvs. med utskrivningar som var det viktigaste sättet att rekrytera fotfolk i Svenska riket inom tidsskedet 1620-1680. Man kan säga, att med indelningsverkets genomförande institutionaliserades och stabiliserades fotfolksrekryrteringen i Svenska riket. Kanske den största förändringen och nyheten – åtminstone i landskapshistorisk mening – var soldattorpet, som grundades riksomfattande i byarnas allmänningar. Lue loppuun

Meriliikenne, haaksirikot ja sukellusseurat 1700-luvun Suomenlahdella

Pietarin (perustettu 1703) meritiestä Suomenlahdella tuli 1700-luvulla yksi Euroopan tärkeimmistä liikenneväylistä, jota pitkin pääasiassa hollantilaiset rahtialukset, flöitit, kuljettivat nousevaan metropoliin arvolasteja. Tämän lisäksi itäiselle Suomenlahdelle, Narvaan, Viipuriin ja Haminaan syntyi kansainvälisesti tärkeä sahatavaran vientikeskus, jonka vienti ylitti reippaasti koko muun Ruotsin sahatavaran vientimäärät. Kasvanut laivaliikenne lisäksi haaksirikkoja. Jotain oli tehtävä, ja nyt myös voitiin tehdä, sillä vedenalaisteknologia ja sukelluksen teoria (Boyle ja tyhjiökokeet) olivat kehittyneet jo edellisellä vuosisadalla. Uponneen aluksen nostoon oli olemassa tekniikka ja sukelluskellokin käytettiin jo Suomenkin vesillä tiettävästi ensimmäisen kerran 1730-luvulla. Lue loppuun

Measuring the Earth ­- Maps and Surveying in Sweden-Finland ca. 1650 to 1809

In 17th and 18th century Sweden the plane table, the leveling diopter and the surveyor’s rope or chain were the tools of the surveyor. Brass precision instruments such as the surveyor’s quadrant or theodolite were still rare or uncommon. In map making, the diopter was used to take bearings of objects to be surveyed before drafting the map on the plane table. Villages with surroundings were mapped (geometriska jordeböcker) and larger areas geographically surveyed (geografiska kartor). The maps were drawn on rag paper, colored with dyes from the soil and completed with an explanatory note (notarum explicatio). Astronomical measurements of location, usually measurements of latitude, were rare and only used in geographical surveys. Lue loppuun

The 18th Century Baltic: Seafaring, Technology and Interaction

The founding of St Petersburg in 1703 was a major turning at the Baltic Region. The
narrow and notorious route through the Gulf of Finland to the rising capital of Russia became one of the most important passages in the world. The Dutch dominated the shipping to the mid18th century, but the British merchantmen were tracking and took the leading role towards the end of the century. The increase in tonnage meant increase in the amount of shipwrecks. Dutch merchantmen carrying their luxury cargoes to St Petersburg sailed in extremely difficult conditions. Disasters were common. On the other hand, to the coastal people wrecks were a gift from heaven and to the salvation companies (est.1734) lucrative venture. Lue loppuun
