Mary Rose crew remains to undergo DNA analysis
Published on June 4th, 2013 | by Admin0
Scientists have begun work to extract DNA from the bones that were found on board the Tudor warship when it was raised from the bottom of The Solent 30 years ago.
They hope to use the genetic information to identify the men who perished on the vessel when it sank and perhaps even trace their living relatives.
It comes as a new £23 million museum built around the preserved remains of the ship, is due to open on Friday.
