Notes :

The Mary Rose, Henry VIII's flagship built in 1509, sank off Southsea Castle on July 19, 1545 as the King watched his warships engage the French fleet. The search for the Mary Rose began in 1965 but it was not until about 1970 that the main wreck site was located. Excavation of the site was embarked upon culminating in 1982 when the hull remains were raised and put on display in Portsmouth Dockyard, along with many of the finds from the site. Fragments of the wreck remain on the seabed and the site is monitored by the Mary Rose Trust.
ADU designation: February 5, 1974; 1974 No. 1; 1974/55.
ADU licences: 1974-93 excavation.
