Back in 1978, I saw the Sutton Hoo artifacts at the British Museum for the first time. And I NEVER forgot them. The incredible artistry in the gold and silver works was stunning, especially because they were made in circa 625 a.d. Seeing them again so many years later, they are still astounding. As I mentioned in this post, which has lots of photos, you can see them at the museum and go to the burial grounds now (the lands were not public back in 1978).
This post is about our visit to Sutton Hoo Burial grounds.
I took about a thousand (well, maybe a hundred) photos in the exhibit area, and as many as I could manage while we had our tour of the mounds. This was the only day it rained, and it POURED. The heavens opened. We got rather wet despite having good rain gear. But it was still cool!
Next up on the England trip, York! But quilty goodies in between, too. Stay tuned!
