Event Summary

Come to The Mary Rose and meet award-winning author Patrice Lawrence and get a signed copy of her new book, Diver’s Daughter – A Tudor Story! Patrice will also be holding readings of her book during the day.

Diver’s Daughter – A Tudor Story explores the life of a young East African girl, Eve, living with her mother in the Southwark slums of Elizabethan London. When they hear from a Mary Rose survivor, George Symon, that one of the African free-divers who was sent to salvage its treasures is alive and well and living in Southampton, mother and daughter agree to try and find him and attempt to dive the wreck of another shop, rumoured to be rich with treasures. But will the pair survive when George arrives to claim his ‘share’? In this thrilling adventure based on real events, Patrice Lawrence shows us a fascinating and rarely seen world that is sure to hook young readers.

On the day we will also have our Gruesome Gunners activities with live gundrills, have a go archery and nine men’s morris.

Price: Free with a valid Mary Rose ticket.
