More than four centuries later, in 1982, her hull was successfully raised from the seabed. The Mary Rose now rests, restored, only a short distance from Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory in Portsmouth's naval dockyard.
THE RELIC OF THE MARY ROSE is a delightful book, devoted to the story of the sinking of the Tudor ship. It contains an eye-witness account of the tragedy by Sir Peter Carew, a near relation of the Mary Rose's ill-fated captain.
This exquisite miniature volume is now available again: as a strictly limited edition, each numbered, and signed by Margaret Rule, Archeological Director of the Mary Rose Trust.
