secrets revealed The skeleton of an archer reveals he was in his early 20s and 178cm (5ft 10in).

He was taller than many of the crew and well built, with strong legs. The middle of his spine is twisted, making one shoulder lower than the other a feature is seen on other skeletons found with archery equipment. One of his right finger bones has grooves on the inside, forming a ridge. This could have been made by repeatedly pulling a longbow string. He was wearing a leather jerkin and a longbow was found nearby. The purser, who controlled food and drink onboard, was a robust, strong and muscular man, with good teeth and an old head wound which had healed. He was in his 30s and about 170cm (5ft 7in). The top of his leg bones and his hip joints are flat, so he must have walked with a rolling gait and would not have been able to straighten his back, so could not have been an active crew member. He had fishing floats with him, suggesting he either had to supplement the ship food, or he simply enjoyed fishing. This man, in his mid 20s, was found trapped behind a chest. He may have been a gunner the gun beside him was being re loaded as the ship sank. But he also had features in his shoulder blades often found in archers, and a longbow and arrows were also found pandora charms kaufen close by. Inside the chest was a leather pouch embroidered with silver thread, a writing seal with the initials "GI", a lead token dated 1542 and silver coins. It also contained a carved bone panel showing two angels carrying candles, which experts believe is a keepsake from a casket produced by the Embriachi family in Venice around 1420. More than 30 years after it was raised from the seabed and almost 500 years since it sank the secrets of Henry VIII flagship, the Mary Rose, are being revealed to the public along with the faces of its crew. Just yards from where it was first constructed from 600 oak trees near Portsmouth naval docks in 1510, the wreck of the Tudor warship now stands on view in its new 35m home. Where once stood a proud, cutting edge ship built for war, now lies a reconstructed array of wooden decks and pillars, withered by their hundreds of years at the bottom of the Solent. Standing nearby are some of the men who shared a pandora beads catalogue grave with the ship for hundreds of years, their faces now reconstructed and displayed for the first time. Viewed through windows on three separate floors, the preserved wreck stands opposite some of its 19,000 artefacts pandora bracelet with charms for sale recovered from the depths. Continue reading the main story Within the exhibition the recreated decks, dimly lit interiors and groaning sounds of the sea outside all combine to give the sense of being on board the 16th Century vessel. The crew quarters are all visible, while rows of cannons line the main deck, pointing out of the open gunports ready to be fired at enemy ships. It is a Tudor time capsule dubbed "Britain Pompeii" by historian David Starkey and its custodians cannot wait to show it off. Continue reading the main storyThe story of the Mary Rose 1510 The ship is ordered by the newly crowned King Henry VIII and construction begins in Portsmouth. It is launched in 1511. 1512 The king flagship fights its first battle, leading an attack on a French fleet. The ship captain called it "The noblest ship of sail". 1545 On 19 July, at the Battle of the Solent, the ship sinks while leading the attack on the French invasion fleet. 1545 1549 Expert Venetian salvors make unsuccessful attempts to raise the wreck. They do recover sails, parts of the masts and the rigging, and later some guns. 1549 1836 The ship lies undisturbed for almost 300 years. 1836 Early pioneering divers, John and Charles Deane, discover the wreck site and raise guns using explosives. They later lose its location. 1965 A new search for the wreck begins. 1971 Divers see the first exposed timbers and the site is identified as the Mary Rose. 1979 1982 The ship contents are excavated by divers and more than 19,000 artefacts are brought to the surface. 1982 The wreck of the hull is raised. The event is watched live on television by an estimated 60 million people worldwide.
