The first chest of yew longbows, one of the largest collections of their type, being examined shortly after being brought up from the Mary Rose dive site.     Overall 172 longbows were recovered (with 2303 arrows!) from a recorded total of 250 bows (and 9,600 arrows).     Although 864 bowstrings were inventoried aboard the Mary Rose, only a small fragment on one has been recovered.    Image © Mary Rose Trust

65 ballock daggers were found on the Mary Rose. Although the blades are usually lost to corrosion, all but one appears to have had a single-edged blade. The handles are mostly made of Boxwood, although other woods used include Ash, Maple and either Hawthorn or Rowan.    The example illustrated is still sheathed, and was found with several small "by-knives", stored in small pockets on the outside of the main sheath. This was not uncommon in those found on the Mary Rose.    Image ©Mary Rose…
