Event description
One of the most amazing archaeological finds ever discovered, a tour from a former official British Museum tour guide

About this event

It was one of the most amazing archaeological finds ever discovered. Hidden in the soil of eastern England for one and half thousand years were glittering riches of gold, silver and garnets, an exquisitely crafted helmet and a long ship. They revolutionised our view of the ‘dark ages’ and the island’s connection to the rest of the world.

Equally interesting in the Sutton Hoo narrative is the story of the excavation itself, just before the Second World War, its different characters, the craving for glory, friction between professionals and amateurs and the excitement of finding the treasures that ‘shone in the sunshine as on the day they were buried’.

And at the centre of it all, there was a strong woman whose hunch was brought to her by her dreams, who desired to give credit where it was due and generously bequeath the treasures to the nation.

We use Google earth, site maps, paintings, photos and diary entries, and of course the stories live-streamed by a former official British Museum Tour guide to bring it all alive.
