ARCHERS have fired a volley of flaming arrows from Southsea Castle to mark the opening of the new Mary Rose Museum.
The display of Tudor firepower is the latest in a line of events taking place today to honour the hundreds of men who died when the famous ship sank in 1545.
Dressed in Tudor clothes, members of the Purbrook Archers fired a volley of fire arrows from the battlements of the castle, where King Henry VIII stood and watched his beloved ship sink.
