Channel 4 Secret History – Skeletons of the Mary Rose: The New Evidence (2019)

Ch4 Secret History 2019 Skeletons of the Mary Rose

Scientists and historians use isotope and DNA analysis to identify the crew of Henry VIII’s flagship, which sank off the coast of Portsmouth in 1545. With the help of Mary Rose Trust curator Alex Hildred, the programme uncovers evidence that many of the sailors were of African origin, and traces surviving descendants of the only two members of the crew who can be identified by name. Plus, the little-known story of a 16th-century Guinean free-diver who retrieved several treasures from the wreck.
