From the time that Henry VIII's warship Mary Rose was raised from the Solent in 1982 after 437 years on the seabed, to the present day, she has been constantly in the public eye. The Tudor ship and the 19,000 artefacts recovered from within her are a fascinating time capsule of life in Tudor times as well as offering unique insights into life in Henry's navy.
