Robert Hardy : 1925-2017

Robert Hardy : 1925-2017

“We are greatly saddened by news of actor Robert Hardy’s death. He was a true gentleman and joy to work with. Robert’s work with the Mary Rose has been transformational as the leading specialist on the longbow.  Without his enthusiasm, skill and knowledge of the craft of archery, the subject would be much diminished.

His close association with the Mary Rose, since the very early days, has been crucial to the understanding of the use of longbows in Tudor times and the important role they continued to play on board Henry VIII’s favourite warship. His passion and enthusiasm for the Mary Rose will be his lasting legacy and treasured by the team.”
