Sutton Hoo

In 1935 Mrs Perry hired an archeologist, Mr Brown, to investigate some mounds in her field. He discovered an undisturbed Anglo Saxon burial complete with grave goods: someone very important, possibly the 7th century king of East Anglia, had been buried in a long boat, a perfect imprint of which was preserved in the soil. |more things to do| 

Sutton Hoo Suffolk

The exhibition and its evocative film tell of the Anglo Saxon settlers and the effect they had on England. You can also have a look round the ground floor of Mrs Perry's house (built 1910) and then set off for a pleasant walk to the burial mounds themselves. Very nice cafe. |map| |next attraction|
