About the Author

Douglas McElvogue was Senior Research Fellow at the Mary Rose Trust and specialises in maritime archaeological reconstructions.


Containing more interpretation of the hull and working of the ship than any publication to date, this book includes a huge mount of very detailed historical, iconographic and archaeological information. The author has interpreted the recovered structure to make it fit the Mary Rose illustrated by Anthony Anthony in 1546. The numerous scale drawings are augmented by technical illustrations with a descriptive index and explanatory views. The number of concepts covered in detail is impressive; all aspects of the ship and how she worked and fought are included, together with a history of the ship and description of life on board.
