The Legacy of the Mary Rose

The Legacy of the Mary Rose

By History Hit

The raising of the Mary Rose 40 years ago - along with some 19,000 objects which sank with her - has become a great boon to Tudor historians, offering an unrivalled glimpse of life at that time. Additionally sixteenth century attempts to depict the tragedy and efforts to retrieve the ship at the time allow us access into aspects of Tudor life that we would have no other way of knowing. 

In the last of her three special episodes on the Mary Rose, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb is in Portsmouth to examine what the Mary Rose has revealed to us about life in the Tudor age.

The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
