Sutton Hoo Research Committee Summary


Sutton Hoo Research Committee: Bulletins 1983-1993 by Edited by Martin Carver

In 1939 the exciting discovery of a medieval ship burial at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk yielded rich treasures and provoked many questions about the history of England during the shadowy period from the fifth to the eleventh centuries AD. This one-volume edition of the annual bulletins of the recent archaeological campaign (1983-92), directed by Martin Carver, shows how the dig succeeded in establishing a context for those early finds, dramatically extending knowledge of the culture and society of the age. Written on site as summaries of each year's activities, precise records rather than scholarly speculation, the bulletins are fascinating despatches from the front line. Cumulatively, they present a step-by-step account of the campaign's progress disinterring evidence not only of the major Anglo-Saxon cemetery, but also of the underlying late Neolithic-early Bronze Age `beaker' period settlement.
