In 1982 the Mary Rose emerged from the Solent to see daylight for the first time in 437 years. I remember this not because of the significance of the event, but because my mum allowed me to stay home from school and watch it on the TV! I also remember gasping as the...
frame suddenly lurched, and it looked like the whole thing was about to head back to the seabed!
36 years later (on the anniversary of her raising) I attended a private event at the Mary Rose Museum. We viewed the wreck and saw breath-taking exhibits. We also had a wonderful talk from Christopher Dobbs, one of the original marine archaeologists who demonstrated how one of the strops attached to the lifting cage had got tangled round a footing and was taking on more weight than the other, causing it to snap. (Gasp!)
In the 36-year gap between these two events I had never known why it had snapped, I just knew that it had. But now, it all makes sense!
It strikes me that as an L&D Professionals it’s part of my role to help people join the dots too. Sometimes, people know the dots that need joining, and other times they need help identify that there are any dots there at all!
