New discovery at Mary Rose site

New discovery at Mary Rose site
trefwoorden: UK - Mary Rose - Tudor - 16e eeuw
Marine archaeologists will reveal details on Monday of a "significant find" on the wreck site of the Tudor warship Mary Rose.
Divers have been at the site for a month looking for more pieces of the ship, which was raised in 1982 after 437 years under the sea off Portsmouth.
The work is the first extensive study of the site since the main part of the hull was raised.
It started after the Royal Navy revealed 200m was to be spent on regenerating Portsmouth so it can house the next generation of warships, including the new aircraft carriers.
However, the route to the naval base is not shallow enough for the new super-carriers - which are twice the size of existing vessels.
