Who found the Mary Rose?

The modern search for the Mary Rose began in 1965, lead by Alexander McKee, a diver and historian. The first timbers were discovered by Percy Ackland, a member of McKee's team, in October 1971.

I was on the beach and found a timber. Is it from the Mary Rose?

Probably not. The wreck site is covered up, so no timbers would have moved by the tides.
