`The Sutton Hoo `princely' burials play a pivotal role in any modern discussion of Germanic kingship.'EARLY MEDIEVAL EUROPE The age of Sutton Hoo runs from the fifth to the eighth century AD - a dark and difficult age, where hard evidence is rare, but glittering and richly varied. Myths, king-lists, place-names, sagas, palaces, belt-buckles, middens and graves are all grist to the archaeologist's mill. This book celebrates the anniversary of the discovery of that most famous burial at Sutton Hoo. Fifty years ago this great treasure, now in the British Museum, was unearthed from the centre of a ninety-foot-long ship buried on remote Suffolk heathland. Included in this volume are 23 wide-ranging essays on the Age of Sutton Hoo and director Martin Carver's summary of the latest excavations, which represent the current state of knowledge about this extraordinary site. That it still has secrets to reveal is shown by the last-minute discovery of a striking burial of a young noble with his horse and grave goods.M.O.H. CARVER is Professor of Archaeology at York University, and Director of the Sutton Hoo Research Project.

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.

Sutton Hoo is a great deal more than it first appears. After all, it first appears as little more than a series of mysterious mounds in the Suffolk landscape. However, thanks to the curiosity of landowner Mrs Edith Pretty and the patient diligence of her hired archaeologist Basil Brown, these mounds yielded the most significant Anglo-Saxon find ever discovered at that time. Having lain buried for over 1,300 years, the treasures of Sutton Hoo took many years to uncover and there's little doubt that there's yet more to be unearthed. The prominence and wealth of the ship-burial in one of the mounds mark it out as the final resting place of a member of Anglo-Saxon royalty. More significant still is the fact that it and its artifacts lay undisturbed by the Tudor tomb raiders who did for many similar sites, providing modern-day archaeologists with invaluable knowledge about a period of history on the margin between myth, legend, and historical documentation. As fascinating as what was uncovered at Sutton Hoo are the stories surrounding the people involved in the discovery of this Anglo-Saxon burial ground, ensuring that this souvenir guidebook tells you as much about the way that people lived as the way they died.
