I know the Tudors aren't exactly ancient, but artifacts from The Mary Rose have been put on display.

Quote from Daily Mail article:


"She was the pride of Henry VIII's fleet.

After 34 years at sea and three wars, the Mary Rose was regarded by many as invincible.

But on July 19, 1545, as she defended England from a French invasion force, she sank - taking 500 men and a vast treasure trove with her to the seabed.

The ship was painstakingly recovered from the Solent in 1982. Yet only a fraction of her 19,000 artefacts have been displayed - until now".

There are many pictures in the article, but these are my favourites:

This is a 'gold half-sovereign from 1544 bearing an image of Henry VIII'



This is 'Europe's oldest example of a Tudor fiddle'



And just for the ick factor - here's a nit comb complete with preserved nits:

Here's a BBC video on the subject, it's only a couple of minutes or so long but it's good to see the objects:

It might take a couple of attempts to get it to play.

Thank you!
This particular wreck is becoming more and more interesting to me by minute...


There is something about sunken ships...
(And I don't mean the fishy odour.)

I expect it would help to post a picture of the ship:



Somebody made a thread recently asking for people to put more info in their posts so that members who didn't have a lot of time wouldn't have to worry about clicking on links. So, hope this will do.
