In 1939 a rich ship-burial was discovered at Sutton Hoo which has been connected with early seventh century East Anglian kings, contemporary Scandinavian burial practices and the Old English poem Beowulf. However, this ship burial is one part of a much larger Anglo-Saxon cemetery. This day course will examine the series of burials at Sutton Hoo and assess their significance for our understanding of Anglo-Saxon society. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
