Online | Treasures of Sutton Hoo


In this online lecture, curator Sue Brunning brings viewers closer than ever to the Sutton Hoo finds.
The objects of the Sutton Hoo ship burial transformed our understanding of the Early Middle Ages forever. Excavated in 1938–1939 in Sutton Hoo, Suffolk, the treasures found in its chamber included Byzantine silverware, sumptuous gold jewellery, a lavish feasting set, and, most famously, an ornate iron helmet. 
With detailed photographs and graphics decoding the imagery on these objects, Sue Brunning will explore the complex artistry, creativity and thinking that underpinned this remarkable burial.
