The Mary Rose; the Excavation and Raising of Henry VIII's Flagship.
Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales.
"The raising of the MARY ROSE is the culmination of a massive eleven-year excavation that will completely transform our knowledge of the sixteenth century. The ship herself is the only survivor from a period of rapid, but poorly documented, change in ship design and construction, in fact, she was one of the first examples of the classic sailing warship that made possible the great age of European expansion. Her sinking in 1545 was both sudden and unexpected, and as a result everything within the hull was trapped and preserved — not only ship fittings, guns and weaponry, but personal objects like clothes, jewellery, books and even a barber-surgeon's medical kit. All these items were in everyday use, and this makes the ship a perfect 'time capsule' of ordinary Tudor life. From her original dramatic loss to the modern recovery operation, the story of the MARY ROSE is a fascinating blend of history, archaeology and adventure. Margaret Rule, the archaeological director of the project from its earliest days, is ideally placed to tell this story, using for the first time the results of the excavation so far. These already indicate that the MARY ROSE may be the most important ship find of all time."
