    Forty years ago on 11 October 1982, after 437 years under water, Henry VIII’s warship, the Mary Rose, was raised from the seabed of the Solent. But how was such a remarkable feat achieved? How did they go about conserving a Tudor warship and the many objects which were on board? And what has been learned about the people who went down with her?


    In the second part of Not Just the Tudors’ mini-series to mark the 40th anniversary of the raising of the Mary Rose, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb is in Portsmouth to find out more from Dr. Alexandra Hildred - who was part of the team that excavated the Mary Rose; Professor Eleanor Schofield, the Deputy Chief Executive at the Mary Rose Trust; and Hannah Matthews, a Curator and osteoarchaeologist who has been closely examining the Mary Rose’s human remains.


    The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.

    Exactly forty years ago, in a groundbreaking and spectacular piece of marine conservation that captured the imagination of the world, the Mary Rose was raised from the seabed. The warship, commissioned by Henry VIII in 1511, sank on 19 July 1545 during an encounter between French and English fleets in the Solent, between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. Perhaps up to 500 men were on board, only 34 survived.


    In the first of three specials marking the 40th anniversary of the raising of the Mary Rose, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb travels to Portsmouth to find out why the Mary Rose sank. She's joined by Dr. Dominic Fontana, Retired Senior Lecturer in Geography formerly at the University of Portsmouth, and Dr. Alexandra Hildred, Head of Research and Curator of Ordnance and Human Remains at the Mary Rose Trust.


    The Senior Producer was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.

Always fascinating

This is a great podcast: a personable host, interesting topics, and a dry dash of humor. Susannah Lipscomb always prepares for each episode, asks interesting questions, and keeps the interviews lively without making them light on academics. The range of topics is startling while still staying linked to the late 15th, 16th and early 17th centuries and providing wonderful period context. No matter which part of the world the podcast travels to, its home base is the Tudors, with behind-the-hype/myth discussions of the people “everyone knows.” It’s definitely my favorite podcast!

Highly recommended for history buffs!

I absolutely love this podcast, I've listened to about a third of the episodes already since discovering it a couple of months ago. It's detailed but not too heavy - the tone is adult but doesn't assume a lot of knowledge about the particular topic of the podcast. They tend to spend a bit of time discussing the sources and historiography each episode, which I also appreciate. You will enjoy this if you enjoy In Our Time and get excited when they do a history episode! Susannah Lipscombe is an engaging and informed host.

Fabulous

Wonderful discussion - Suzannah Lipscombe is always fabulous and her guests and subjects discussed keep me listening. I really enjoyed Natalie Grueninger examining myths of Anne Boleyn.
