Mary Rose dog skeleton on display at Portsmouth museum





A dog which sailed aboard the Mary Rose ship 465 years ago has taken up residence in the Mary Rose Museum at the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

The animal's skeleton, which has been reconstructed by staff at the Mary Rose Trust, went on display on Friday.

The dog was discovered trapped in the sliding door of the carpenter's cabin of the Mary Rose, which sank in 1545.

The dog, named Hatch by museum staff, was probably used as a ratter and was about two years old when she died.
