A French fleet, under the leadership of Admiral d'Annebault, enters
the Solent, encroaching on English territory. England's finest
warship, the Mary Rose, based at Portsmouth, attempts to retaliate
but heels over in the harbour and sinks. The wreck is to remain
there for the next 450 years, until it was raised from the seabed
for examination in 1982.
