Year 5 Trip to the British Museum

This term Year 5 have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons so we went to the British Museum to learn more about the special burial site of Sutton Hoo. We learnt that Sutton Hoo is a massive Anglo-Saxon grave that was discovered in Suffolk. In 1939 archaeologists explored the burial site and discovered a ship buried beneath one of the mounds. Within this ship, archaeologists discovered many hidden treasures, such as Anglo-Saxon jewellery, weapons and armour. Some of these artefacts have been preserved and displayed at the Museum for us to see, to help us learn more about what life was like during Anglo-Saxon times.
