Lecture: Superstition - about customs and traditions among sailors

Location: Karlskrona
Arena/Place: Marinmuseum
Category: Events, Föredrag, Guidade turer
Date: Wednesday 1 apr 2020

Man has always practiced various rites and customs; some are associated with solemn celebrations during the year while others have been more mundane. Not infrequently, everyday rituals have been designed to bring good luck and prevent misery.

Some call it superstition, folklore or maybe even some kind of magic, but in a time other than ours it was obvious and not least for past sailors.

Just as important as not whistling aboard a ship, it was just as important to place an offering coin under its mast; everything to keep up with the creatures believed to prevail in and around the ocean.

You will hear about this and more during a storytelling evening at the Naval Museum. Some items that are not usually displayed in their collections will be out for display during the evening.

Collection at the Information Desk.
Max number: 30 people

The event is free of charge and requires no pre-registration.
