Sutton Hoo, Suffolk ....

In a field overlooking the River Deben at Sutton Hoo near Woodbridge, on the eve of the Second World War, archaeologist Basil Brown discovered one of the greatest treasures ever found in Britain..... a 90 foot long Anglo Saxon King's burial ship (thought to be King Raedwald, King of East Anglia) and his possessions which had lain undisturbed for 1300 years and has changed the way we think about the Anglo Saxons.

This is fascinating. We really don't know what's under our feet.
