The raising of the Mary Rose in pictures | Nostalgia
In 1545 the Mary Rose was part of a defensive fleet when a French armada attacked the Isle of Wight with the intent of invading England via Portsmouth.
For reasons unknown the ship capsized taking her crew of about 500 to the bottom just a couple of miles off Portsmouth.
The ship is arguably more famous for the massive salvage operation in 1982 when she was returned to the surface on live television, an event seen by 60 million people worldwide.
