New Funding for Historic Artefacts and Ships at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

Nearly £100K of funding has been awarded to scientists to help ensure that Tudor warship the Mary Rose and other historic ships at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard - as well as related artefacts such as boots, cannons and gold coins - are protected for years to come.

The funding has been awarded to the University of Portsmouth, in partnership with the Mary Rose Trust, for state-of-the-art digital microscopy equipment.
It is funded by the Art and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Capability for Collections fund, part of the UK Research and Innovation’s World Class Labs funding scheme.
