Museum's honour for its digital media work

AN AWARD-WINNING Portsmouth museum has scooped another accolade.

The Mary Rose, at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, was named the winner of '˜The First Sea Lord's Award for Best Use of Digital Media' at the Maritime Media Awards in London last week. 

The Mary Rose was nominated for its website, which, supported by research, presents an illuminating account of Henry VIII's flagship and the 19,000 personal and professional artefacts that give an insight into life on board.
