“Henry VIII’s flagship” after extensive conservation

King Henry VIII commissioned a new flagship in 1510 and the Mary Rose was launched the following year. In 1545, the Mary Rose sank off the Isle of Wight during a battle with a French fleet. The wreck was rediscovered in 1971 and subsequently the remains have subject to excavation and conservation by the Mary Rose Trust. In 1982, the hull was raised in a live televised event. Today, the conserved ship remains are housed in a newly refurbished museum that allows for the public to view it from all angles.
