British Science Week 2018

British Science Week 2018

9th – 18th March 2018

British Science Week, run by the British Science Association, is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.

 

The Mary Rose is running a series of talks, led by our conservation team, showing you all the science behind ensuring that the Henry VIII’s favourite warship continues to wow people for years to come. Other than the Evening Lecture on 14th March, all events are free with a valid Mary Rose Ticket.

Further details will be added nearer the time.
