resting on shore

Henry VIII’s great warship  Mary Rose was raised from the Solent just off Southsea Castle in 1982 and is now displayed in Portsmouth’ Historic Dockyards and cared for by the Mary Rose Trust.


The bones of  179 individuals were found during the excavations of the Mary Rose, including 92 fairly complete skeletons. Analysis has shown that all were male, and most of them were young adults. The remains of one of the sailors of the original Mary Rose was buried in the south aisle of Portsmouth Cathedral.
