Sutton Hoo, England


“A token British find to please our friends over at Current Archaeology. When Basic Brown excavated a group of low grassy mounds in Suffolk he uncovered something amazing: a huge in tact ship burial, containing the richest haul of Anglo Saxon grave goods in archaeological history. Imported Byzantine objects, enigmatic religious symbols, recreational objects and weaponry – including the world-famous helmet – allowed vivid insights into the Anglo-Saxon world. 

If you like ship burials, why not read about the most spectacular Viking find of this type: Norway’s Oseberg ship.”
