UK Historical MarkersSutton Hoo Burial Ground - Sutton Hoo, Suffolk

in UK Historical Markers

Although only a small part of the cemetery was excavated, the high proportion of 'warrior' status burials marks this cemetery out as something special. The relationship between the two cemeteries is open to debate, but it leads one to consider if this above-river escarpment at Sutton Hoo might have developed as an early Anglo-Saxon established ritual landscape, marking out one cemetery for high standing individuals and a separate cemetery reserved for the ruling elite.
