On this day - 11th October, 1982 : The Mary Rose, flagship of King Henry VIII, was raised to the surface after 437 years at the bottom of the Solent. The ship's remains of mud-caked timber were successfully re-floated and experts began the long process of restoring the Mary Rose in a dry dock in Portsmouth. The Mary Rose now forms part of the maritime museum at Portsmouth and together with HMS Victory attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
