Sutton hoo and King Readwald

Today we went to Sutton Hoo. Sutton Hoo is a place where we think the Anglo-Saxons buried a famous king called King Readwald.  He died at 625 ad.

King Readwald is important because he made the Anglo-Saxons come together as a country called England. He took place in many battles and he succeeded in his mission.

Did you know that the archeologies think he was buried in his coffin in a small ship - which hd to be dragged for miles from the sea up the hills to where it was found.

 He had his treasures all around him. The mound was 22m high and was made by hand. Alot of work
