Henry VIII's flagship Mary Rose has been unveiled after 34 years of conservation work
The ship sank while in 1545 in the Solent, just off the shore of Portsmouth, England, while leading an attack against a French invasion fleet. Henry VIII himself was on shore, and witnessed the ship going down.
The wreck was rediscovered in 1982, and raised by a salvage team.
