The Mary Rose Trust is home to Henry VIIIs warship and many associated artefacts. The collection has a range of artefacts in terms of size, material, degree of degradation and function. It comprises items needed for everyday survival in Tudor times, an impressive array of weapons and also personal items such as clothing, combs and playing dice. This talk will explore some of the analytical techniques used to determine material properties and how this information is used to inform future conservation strategies and ensure this unique collection is kept stable for years to come.
