On a recent voyage to Portsmouth, I had the opportunity to do a hands-on
observation and photo study of the Reserve Collection of the Mary Rose.
This collection of artifacts amounts to several thousand wooden objects
recovered from the bottom of the Solent and preserved using Polyethylene
I was not sufficiently disciplined to do a good photo-study of a few
artifacts. I went somewhat berserk and did a shallow one-or-two pictures of
quite a few items instead. I have pictures of bows, arrows, boxes, chests,
linstocks, a shovel, tool handles, and a goodly number of other items.
Unfortunately, my pictures from the Reserve Collection are not for
publication. I was able to take them only with the provision that they were
for my private use. Dint of careful persuasion got me permission to do
slideshows and classes.
Accordingly, I will be presenting a slideshow, Unpublished Artifact images -
Mary Rose Shipwreck at 8:30 pm on Wednesday night at Gulf Wars at the Main
tent at Artisan's Row, near Bede Hall. All are welcome.
