About this event

30 years ago, the Mary Rose was lifted from the sea bed in the Solent, watched by 60 million people world wide.  While the ship itself is remarkable, both as the first warship of our standing navy and as the only sixteenth century ship to be on display in the world, it is the contents from within her that are the true marvels of this unique project.  A new museum has been built in Portsmouth to display both the ship and her contents set in context together.

For the first time, the collection will be shown in its full glory, giving the world's finest insight into life 500 years ago. Looking after these priceless objects requires cutting edge technology, and the project to house the collection and complete the conservation has been described as one of the most complex currently underway.  The museum is expected to open at Easter 2013, probably in the week of this talk.

John Lippiett has been the Chief Executive of the Mary Rose Trust for the last ten years, and will give a talk on the project to create what is going to be a sensational exhibition of international standing.

Speaker

John Lippiett, Chief Executive of the Mary Rose Trust
