An accessible and bestselling account of the world-famous discoveries at Sutton Hoo.
The Sutton Hoo ship-burial is one of the most significant finds ever made in Europe and arguably the world. It lies in a burial ground which contains all the elements of archaeological mystery and romance: seventeen burial mounds, buried treasure, great works of art, sacrificed horses and human execution.
This, the first accessible account of the site, was published to great acclaim in 1998. It explains what we know of the burial ground, describes the three campaigns of excavation and research, and the story of one of the most dramatic historic places in early England.
