Riassunto: A new development in the 'Anatomy of the Ship' series utilizes archaeology to trace the development and careers of individual ships while placing them on the context of the wider and long term developments in ship construction.
The Mary Rose begins with an historical overview of the political background and English tradition of naval architecture and construction in the Tudor period. The concepts behind the building of the ship along with the materials, fitting out and manning will be examined. A complete discussion of the ships ordnance including muzzle loaders, breech loaders, firearms, bows, staff weapons, bladed weapons and fire pots will be placed in the wider context of general naval tactics, and strategy from the period. Analysis of the contemporary descriptions of the Mary Rose's sailing characteristics and ship handling includes consideration of general sailing, heavy weather sailing, anchoring, mooring, stemming the tide, and riding out storms.
A service history of the Mary Rose looks at the campaigns of the vessel including the battles she was involved in, when she held station in the channel and the periods in which she was laid up. A final section examines the historical sources to describe the loss of the Mary Rose.
A new selection in the Anatomy of the Ship series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a unique insight into the architecture and construction of the iconic ship of the Tudor period. This comprehensive reference includes over 200 scale drawings detailing every part of the ship's interior and exterior from heel to masthead. As with other books in the series, Tudor Warship Mary Rose is a radical departure from the usual monograph approach, instead providing conventional ship plans as well as explanatory perspective views with fully descriptive keys.
In addition to describing the ship's structure and anatomy, McElvogue also utilizes archaeology to trace the development and career of Henry VIII's famous warship while placing it in the context of wider developments in shipbuilding. This book will surely appeal to model makers, historians, archaeologists, and enthusiasts alike.
