British Science Week at the Mary Rose

Between 14 and 17 March 2019, the Mary Rose Trust, in partnership with Zeiss Microscopy, will be offering visitors to the Mary Rose, the chance to learn about the science behind caring for their Tudor collection.

The collection lay at the bottom of the sea for 437 years, and this, of course, raises unique conservation challenges. Go along to the demonstration events throughout the weekend to learn about the scientific techniques used to keep artefacts safe for future generations, and also look at items from the Mary Rose collection through a Zeiss Smartzoom optical microscope to see the structural damage caused by their time spent undersea.

More about the events on offer across the four days can be found here.
