Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Ship Burial

Sutton Hoo is a group of low grassy mounds, overlooking Woodbridge from the Eastern Bank of the Deben. In 1939 excavations brought to light the richest burial ever discovered in Britain; an Anglo-Saxon ship containing the treasure of one of the earliest English kings, Redwald, King of East Anglia.

Excavations, completed in 1991, proved the site to be a complex collection of burials, some royal, others possibly the victims of execution.

There is a permanent exhibition of the story of Sutton Hoo and, annually, new exhibits are arranged.
