Day Two

History - Anglo Saxon Sutton Hoo burial site


Read through the powerpoint which tells you all about Sutton Hoo in East Anglia.


Look carefully at the artefacts that were found at Sutton Hoo in the powerpoint. Which of the artefacts tell you the person buried at Sutton Hoo was important, which artefacts tell you the person was a King, buried between AD 595 and 625, which artefacts tell you the person was wealthy, a Christian and warrior? List them on your worksheet.


Once you have done this, read the descriptions of 4 people who could have been buried at Sutton Hoo. Use the clues and your knowledge of what was found at Sutton Hoo to decide which of the people it was.
