The Sutton Hoo Research Project 1983-2001
Complied and edited by Martin Carver, 2004
The archaeological site of Sutton Hoo, located in
Suffolk, south-east England, is famous for the
Anglo-Saxon ship burial discovered there in 1939.
Investigations at the site since 1939 have, however,
revealed a wide range of finds and features that
have shed light on occupation and activity at the
site within a far wider timescale. Such discoveries
have included field boundaries and farming
activities from the Neolithic, Beaker (Early Bronze
Age), Later Bronze Age and Iron Age periods,
cemeteries of the Early Medieval period and Medieval
and Post-Medieval agricultural and cultural events
including two campaigns of (unrecorded) exploratory
digging in the 16th and 19th centuries. Together the
results offer a 5000 year sequence through a
landscape of rural England.
