Peter Marsden: Who sank the Mary Rose? [Aug. 2019]

Recommended Posts

Der Archäologe Peter Marsden, der bereits zwei Bücher zu diesem Schiff veröffentlichte bzw. herausgab, befaßt sich hier detailliert mit den Umständen, die zum Untergang des Schiffs im Gefecht führten.  Fatal wirkte sich hier wohl ein "extra deck" aus, welches zum Kentern geführt zu haben scheint. 

This new book by one of the country’s leading experts on the Mary Rose contains much that is published for the first time. It has the first full account of the battle in which Henry VIII’s warship was sunk, and tells the stories of the English and French admirals. It examines the design and construction of the ship and how she was used, and develops themes begun when he was earlier commissioned by the Mary Rose Trust to write the multi-volume history of the ship. He shows for the first time conclusively that the French fleet arrived unexpectedly to seize the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth a day later than was once believed, that the many bodies found in the wreck reflect her at action stations, and that the ship had had an extra deck added and was therefore more unstable than was previously thought. Finally, the author makes it clear who was responsible for the loss of the Mary Rose, after describing what happened onboard, deck by deck, in her last moments afloat.
