The Sutton Hoo Helmet DVD


Members' price *

  • Nearly 1,500 years after it was made, the magnificent Sutton Hoo helmet has taken its place in the British Museum as one of its supreme treasures. Discovered on the eve of the Second World War as part of a spectacular Anglo- Saxon ship burial, it became a symbol of the nation and proof of a forgotten, sophisticated civilization. But who crafted it? Who wore it? This fascinating film records the excitement of the ships excavation, examines the helmet in detail and searches for the true identity of the King who once looked out from the formidably realistic face mask.
    Extras:A gallery of 20 artefacts from the Sutton Hoo site.
