Scientists have stopped spraying the 500-year-old wreck of the Mary Rose with a protective was for the first time in nearly two decades, an historic milestone in the conservation of Henry VIII's Tudor warship. Here is a factfile on the ship's history.

Just a heads up, Still Waters, you might change that "protective was" to "protective wax". Makes much more sense then!

That aside, they've been spraying the wax on there since 1982 - holy cow!!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Very cool.....can I just say that another  "protection wax" story is that of Saint Bernadette in Never, France. The sight will blow your mind.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

More than 30 years after it was raised from the seabed - and almost 500 years since it sank - the secrets of Henry VIII's flagship, the Mary Rose, are being revealed to the public - along with the faces of its crew.

Just yards from where it was first constructed from 600 oak trees near Portsmouth's naval docks in 1510, the wreck of the Tudor warship now stands on view in its new £35m home.
