Archaeology Abridged with Martin Carver: "Discovering Stutton Hoo"
Sutton Hoo in Eastern England is a famous archaeological site – but one that never sits still; it changes with the years. Rediscovered in 1938 by Basil Brown and Mrs Pretty, it gave us the great ship burial under Mound 1 with its incomparable treasure. In 1945-1983 British Museum scholars led by Rupert Bruce-Mitford reassembled the finds and studied them, returning to the site to look for anything they may have missed. From 1983-2005 there was a new campaign sponsored by the British Museum, the Society of Antiquaries and the BBC. Their mission: to give the site its context. What was a ship burial doing in seventh Suffolk: Why that? Why there? Why then?

Martin Carver, who directed the latest of the campaigns, describes what we know about Sutton Hoo today.
