Secrets of the Mary Rose

Synopsis
Over twenty years after the Tudor ship Mary Rose was lifted from Portsmouth harbour, maritime archaeologists attempting to complete the jigsaw return to the site of the shipwreck. This programme tells of not only the artefacts discovered - cooking utensils, prayer books, weapons - but also reveals the stories of the sailors themselves. Dramatic reconstruction and detailed graphics provide a picture of what life would have been like on a Tudor warship
