Sutton Hoo in Suffolk, England, is the site of one of the most significant archaeological digs in British history. The ship burial produced the greatest collection of treasures ever discovered in the UK, and rewrote the early medieval history of England. Buried in a chamber, built into the centre of the ship, the remains King Rædwald of East Anglia were found. Many precious artefacts of pottery, metalwork, gold and gems were also uncovered.
The ‘Great’ Buckle – This pewter buckle is based on a gold buckle discovered in the ship’s chamber, known as the ‘great’ buckle weighing over 400g.
