On the night of March 25, 1675, the Mary foundered off the coast of Anglesey. The circumstances of the loss of this first royal yacht have long been a mystery; when the wreck was discovered in 1971, it was hoped that some of the lingering questions related to the yacht’s fateful voyage would be answered, but the subsequent excavation only led to a demand for greater legal protection for ocean wrecks. This fascinating volume explores the intriguing saga behind the Mary and provides a gripping account of both the disastrous wreck and its excavation.
Matthew Tanner explores this intriguing saga and provides a gripping and authoritative account of the disaster and of the discovery of the wreck and its excavation. The story is completed by a catalogue of the finds and a full examination of the archaeological evidence.
