The Sutton Hoo estate, with far-reaching views over the River Deben, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Its links to the tidal estuary and the sea made it a site of prime importance to the Anglo-Saxons, but for centuries its secrets lay hidden beneath mysterious mounds. Here, for a brief period starting in the sixth century, the Anglo-Saxons came to honour their dead.

As a maritime nation, they practised ship burials. What they left behind, discovered at a crucial time in our history, gave invaluable clues about our ancestors – a priceless treasure trove of information.
