Fodor's Review

The visitor center at Sutton Hoo tells the story of one of Britain's most significant Anglo-Saxon archaeological sites. In 1938 a local archaeologist excavated a series of earth mounds and discovered a 7th-century burial ship, probably that of King Raedwald of East Anglia. A replica of the 90-foot-long ship stands in the visitor center, which has artifacts and displays about Anglo-Saxon society. Fascinating as it is, nothing can quite make up for the fact that the best finds have been moved to the British Museum in London. Trails around the 245-acre site explore the area along the River Deben.
