In the case of building a state-of-the-art warship, these materials were primarily oak.

The total amount of timber needed for the construction can only be roughly calculated since only about one third of the ship still exists.

It was raised in 1982 by the Mary Rose Trust, in one of the most complex and expensive projects in the history of maritime archaeology.

The surviving section of the ship and thousands of recovered artefacts are of immeasurable value as a Tudor-era time capsule.

The War of the Roses—the civil war between the houses of York and Lancaster—had ended with Henry VII's establishment of the House of Tudor, the new ruling dynasty of England.

The ambitious naval policies of Henry V were not continued by his successors, and from 1422 to 1509 only six ships were built for the crown.

The construction of the Mary Rose began in 1510 in Portsmouth and she was launched in July 1511.

She was then towed to London and fitted with rigging and decking, and supplied with armaments.

The wreck of the Mary Rose was rediscovered in 1971.She was armed with new types of heavy guns that could fire through the recently invented gun-ports.
