Yesterday John and I discovered Mary Rose, a ship built 1512 (!) and sunk serving her last action against the French invasion fleet at 1545. The wreck was rediscovered in 1971 including her dod, who was used to capture rats! The wreck was salvaged in 1982 and has been one of the most complex and expensive projects in the history of maritime archaeology! There are MANY artefacts, not just the dog. To recommend!!!!
