0 Reviews
The story of one of the richest archaeological finds of all time: a ship burial containing the treasures of a king who was probably the last of the pagan rulers of East Anglia. Now displayed in a place of honour at the British Museum and at the Sutton Hoo site in Suffolk, the unique finds tell much about one of the most elusive periods of British history. From his study of the ship, the author draws inferences about Anglo Saxon immigration routes. This edition takes into account the revisions made since the appearance of the original edition, and includes a number of colour plates as well as the original line drawings.
