“A ship on a journey leaves no imprint on the archaeological record if the journey is successful. The catastrophic sinking of a ship, the largest and most complex machine of the pre-industrial age, can leave tangible evidence for the archaeologists to find. Mary Rose is important because we have her, and we have because she sunk. This book describes the journey of Mary Rose from her inception, through to her sinking, her subsequent excavation, raising, preservation and presentation to the public”.
