Description

Caldercraft Mary Rose

The Mary Rose was a carrack warship of the English Tudor navy from the early 16th century. It was launched in 1511 and served in several wars against France. In 1545, during the Battle of the Solent against the French navy, the Mary Rose sank with the loss of nearly 500 crew members.

The ship was rediscovered in 1971 and was eventually raised in 1982, making it one of the most famous maritime archaeological finds in history. The Mary Rose is now on display at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth, England.

The preservation of the Mary Rose and its artifacts has provided valuable insights into Tudor naval warfare, shipbuilding techniques, and daily life onboard a 16th-century warship. The ship’s collection includes over 19,000 artifacts, ranging from weapons and tools to personal items that belonged to the sailors.

The Mary Rose remains an iconic symbol of England’s naval history and serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by sailors in the service of their country. The ongoing research and conservation efforts surrounding the Mary Rose continue to uncover new information about this historic vessel and the lives of those who sailed aboard her.

The Caldercraft Mary Rose kit has been designed with the full co-operation of the Mary Rose Trust, making the kit the only model based on the most up to date research and information. The kit is, therefore, the most accurate of its type on a Tudor Warship.
