The Mary Rose: A Tudor ship’s secrets revealed
More than 30 years after it was raised from the seabed - and almost 500 years since it sank - the secrets of Henry VIII’s flagship, the Mary Rose, are being revealed to the public - along with the faces of its crew.
Just yards from where it was first constructed from 600 oak trees near Portsmouth’s naval docks in 1510, the wreck of the Tudor warship now stands on view in its new £35m home.
Where once stood a proud, cutting-edge ship built for war, now lies a reconstructed array of wooden decks and pillars, withered by their hundreds of years at the bottom of the Solent.
Standing nearby are some of the men who shared a grave with the ship for hundreds of years, their faces now reconstructed and displayed for the first time.
