The Secrets of the Mary Rose
The Mary Rose was Henry VIII’s favorite warship and flagship of his fleet. It was lost in 1545 but thanks to one of the greatest maritime archaeology projects in British history it was discovered again, excavated, and raised from the seabed in the 1980s. Using 40 years of archive footage, historian Dan Snow charts the incredible story of the Mary Rose.
