In 1982, amidst huge publicity, an expert crew of archaeologists and conservators raised the wreck and started a process of research that is now revealing fascinating details of life aboard the Tudor warship. Shipwrecks offer a chance to investigate a whole world, caught at a moment in time, and this volume sheds light on some of the minutiae of Tudor life inaccessible through any other means. (This is a provisional description awaiting a final version to be cleared with the Mary Rose Trust).
