In conversation with… Christopher Dobbs, Head of Interpretation & Maritime Archaeology at the Mary Rose Museum

Chris is one of the original dive team on the Mary Rose ship wreck site in the Solent. With over 40 years of service with the Mary Rose, his insights and knowledge are second to none.

In this first podcast, we learn about his experiences and hear some of the fascinating stories he has to tell from the 1980s to the present day.

We ask him about his favourite objects of the 19,000 that have been discovered, many thousands of which are on display in the Mary Rose Museum at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
