Face of Mary Rose drowned sailor recreated


England's world famous Tudor war ship, the Mary Rose, is being unveiled to the public in a new museum display in Portsmouth.

The vessel sank in 1545, and remained on the seabed until 1982.

Here, Robert Hall speaks to forensic artist, Oscar Nilsson, who explains how he created a detailed model of the head of one of the sailors who drowned almost 500 years ago.

You can see a documentary about the raising and restoration of the Mary Rose, 'Mary Rose Reborn', this Saturday on BBC News Channel at 2.30pm.
