The Mary Rose

The story of the raising of a large section of Henry VIII’s prize warship , built and refitted in the 16th. century, and which ignomiously turned over and sank on her way to give battle to the French fleet, is now legendary. (Don’t think Henry’s comments are recorded – perhaps “off with his head” would have been one?) Just a tiny glimpse here of some objects recovered. The pewter plates, cannon with Tudor rose emblazoned on it, and the selection of shot are good examples.
