The bell from the Mary Rose was one of the last items to be recovered from the wreck site. It was cast in bronze which is made up of copper, tin and lead. There is just enough space to include the date but the full Flemish inscription reads ‘Ic ben ghegoten int yaer MCCCCCX’ which translates as ‘I was made in the year 1510,’ the year the Mary Rose was commissioned.
The bell was used to signal the time, to mark the change of the watch and as a warning to other ships in fog.
The Mary Rose - Henry VIII's warship, lost in 1545, recovered in 1982 and now on display in a dedicated museum in Portsmouth for everyone to visit all year round All purchases made help contribute to the preservation and conservation of the Mary Rose and the 19,000 objects that were recovered from the seabed.
