Mary Rose: The first Ship of our Standing Navy

Rear Admiral John Lippiett

2009 marks the 500th anniversary of the Mary Rose, the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world. She was a revolutionary build, and one of the first ships able to fire a broadside. After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology.

This is a part of the Tudor Ports of London series celebrating the centenary of the Port of London Authority (PLA). Other lectures in the series include: 
    The Legal Quays: Sir William Paulet, First Marquis of Winchester
    Richard Hakluyt: London's role in navigation and history 
    The Livery Companies in Tudor London
    Merchants and Heroes: London's history in the time of John Stow
 The final event was a conference at The Museum of London on the 16th of May:  The Tudor Port of London: An Archaeological Investigation
