The Sutton Hoo ship burial

These finds come from a spectacular Anglo-Saxon grave at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk. Dating from the early AD 600s, the burial was arranged inside a wooden chamber built in the middle of a 27m long ship, covered in a high earth mound. It is the richest grave yet discovered from early medieval Europe, and would have commemorated a leading figure - perhaps a king - of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of East Anglia.

These photos were taken from the Sutton Hoo section in the British Museum, London. (The Exhibition Hall at Sutton Hoo itself is scheduled to re-open Summer 2019 after a large refurbishment).

AIRC the grave was missed by robbers because the end of the barrow had been ploughed away, making the actual grave off-centre.

It's amazing just how they managed to make such things, from the base metal up to the shaping and decorating, all that time ago.
