Canute is acknowledged as King of Denmark, (he was King of England since 1017), three years after the death of his brother Sweyn.

This is a good year for him, as he sees his wife Emma of Normandy (King Ethelred's widow) give birth to an heir, who will be named Hartacanute (Canute the Hardy).

A vessel wrecked off Serçe Limani, Turkey (opposite Rhodes), around this time is the earliest known evidence that seagoing wooden ships are being built in the modern way, starting with a keel and framework to which planking is added. Earlier ships were built by first joining planks together and then bracing the ship as needed.
