Mary Rose Museum
The Mary Rose is the only 16th century warship on display anywhere in the world. Built between 1509 and 1511, she was one of the first ships able to fire a broadside, and was a firm favourite of King Henry VIII. After a long and successful career, she sank accidentally during an engagement with the French fleet in 1545. Her rediscovery and raising were seminal events in the history of nautical archaeology.

The Civil War in Oxfordshire
For most of the War, Oxford was the capital of Royalist England and command headquarters for Charles I's army, whilst London was in the hands of Parliamentarians. Many of the county's towns and villages were held, in turn, by Royalist and Parliamentarian forces and inhabitants had to endure battle, looting and siege. This site looks at these links between Oxford and the Civil War.
The Wallace Collection
The Wallace Collection is both a national museum and the finest private collection of art ever assembled by one family. It was bequeathed to the nation by Lady Wallace, widow of Sir Richard Wallace, in 1897, and opened to the public just over three years later on 22 June 1900.

Weapons of the Thirty Year's War - The Army of Gustavus II Adolphus (US)
The Thirty Years War saw many different styles of weapons and accouterments; however, it is the method in which they were employed that made the basic infantryman a formidable force on the
battlefield. What I hope to do in this page is to break down the influence which each of these major weapons groups had during the Thirty Years War and show you how they were used by
Gustavus II Adolphus' army.
