Explore The Mary Rose Interactive
"Explore the Mary Rose" is designed to encourage pupils to do two things: to do their own research, and to work from evidence. They can find out for themselves about one member of the crew and his life on board, and discover the main facts about the history and archaeology of the ship. Using the knowledge gained in this way, they can then look more closely at photographs of the artefacts and, working from them, start to draw their own conclusions from the evidence available.
