Blue Maiden is actually red. It consist mostly of red granite which sparkles in the evening sun. In May of 2017, I accompanied an archaeological excavation to the island to take photo and video for the public presentation. We, Ludvig Papmehl-Dufay, Anna-Karin Andersson, Kenneth Alexandersson and I, arrived on stormy seas on the northern part of the island, having hitched a ride with Sjöräddningssällskapet (the sea rescue fellowship). A provosional dock was made where we could unload our gear on the rocky shoreline.
