£35m project to explore the Mary Rose and her crew

4 April 2012 Last updated at 15:18 BST

The Mary Rose, the flagship of Henry VIII's navy, was one of the most famous ships in the world. The ship sank, with loss of 700 men, during a battle near Portsmouth in 1545.

A complex salvage operation brought her to the surface in 1982.

Now a £35m project will tell us even more about the ship, and her crew.
