The Mary Rose.
« on: Sunday 17 March 19 10:36 GMT (UK) »
Skeletons of the Mary Rose : The New Evidence.  One off documentary following scientists as they use isotope and DNA analysis to identify the crew of Henry V111's flagship, and trace their surviving descendants. On Channel 4 tonight at 8 ..... Hopefully worth a watch.

And what a dilemma for me!  Because it clashes with Midsomer Murders!

It's being repeated in the wee small hours on 4seven if that helps anyone.  Otherwise hopefully the 4od catch-up service.

Or watch c4 at 8 and msm at 9 on itv+1 (if that doesn't produce a new clash  ;D)

I have set this to record but what gets me about the advertising of the programme is that they keep on going on about there being Africans in the crew as if this is new. It is not. Within a few years of the Mary Rose being raised and research being carried out they had already established that the crew was multi national which is hardly surprising given the use of mercenaries, indentured servants and dare one say it slaves at the time all over Europe and further afield.

Still it will be interesting to see what they make of the isotope and DNA analysis. Just hope its more scientifically based than the charade that was Cheddar Gorge man.

Oooh thanks for this, how exciting.  I'll watch it on catch-up in a day or two.  I'm currently doing the FutureLearn online course about the Tudors and so that programme will fit in very nicely indeed.

I thought The Royal Archer  looked a bit like Sean Bean.
And was’nt the diver handsome..
Some surprises butI May have  misheard but  it was said about the pomrgranite on the zRoyal Archer’s equipment ,that it could be a connection to Katherine of Aragon but she had been “dead for thirty years”.
Well no,she died 3 years after her divorce which was in 1533, dying 1536.
Mary Rose  sank 1545,so only 9 years after her death so I could ’nt  have
mistaken  13  either.
It intrigues me but my tiddlerG.Grandson is here and the zTV was low.

It ought not have been a surprise to one expert re the archers having twisted spines .
The stress on their bodies was very great and developed one side more than the other. It was a law that men must practice   archery every Sunday afternoon,at the butts.
A six foot English longbow needed great strength to pull.
