"In Raising the Dead, A. J. Stirland uses archaeological and skeletal evidence to give the reader a welcome insight into the lives of the mariners and soldiers of the Mary Rose, from their ages and height to their health, diet and physical condition. This book examines the building, sinking and raising of the Mary Rose and her historical context before moving on to the examination of what the remains of the crew can reveal to us about fighting men of that period. Many new findings have been made through analysis of their bones, including the effects of some activities and occupations on the skeletons of the men.".
