The £27 m project to build a new museum for the Tudor warship Mary Rose in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard is now complete. The building was unveiled where King Henry VIII’s flagship is housed. The famous ship sank in 1545 in the Solent near Portsmouth during a battle with the French fleet. When is capsized, its starboard side became embedded in clay below the soft sediment of the seabed, enabling it to survive intact.
