The salvage of the Mary Rose, Henry VIII’s Tudor warship famously wrecked in the Solent, is one of maritime archaeology’s great successes.

Remarkably preserved, the hull was recovered in 1982 the treatment inititally involved spraying with cool water to prevent the timbers drying and to prevent microbial activity. Following this, a two stage treatment of spraying with wax has taken place and the Mary Rose is now in the process of drying in environmentally controlled conditions. These conservation processes forged the techniques used to conserve the Must Farm boats today.

The Mary Rose continues to undergo active conservation, learn about the entire process and hear the latest news from Dr Eleanor Schofield, Conservation Manager for the Mary Rose Trust.

Tickets cost £8, £5 for concessions and Heritage Pass holders.
