The Mary Rose was King Henry VIII's favourite warship. Built in 1510 and lost in 1545, she was raised in 1982 and is the centrepiece of the Mary Rose Museum  in Portsmouth, England.

From September 1998 until February 1999, new sections covering aspects of Tudor life, history, the ship, and the artefacts recovered from her, will be added to this site.

This is a joint project between between the Mary Rose Trust, Portsmouth Council Education Authority, local schools and Portsmouth University. We hope you will enjoy it and find it useful.
