What was found at Sutton Hoo?

What was found at Sutton Hoo?Near the River Deben in Suffolk, at Sutton Hoo, are eleven mounds or ‘barrows’ dating back to the 7th century. In 1938 it was decided to open the largest of these to find out what it contained. The result was the greatest archeological discovery ever made in Britain. Within the barrow was a king’s ship, 25 meters long, and, inside this, a royal treasure which included gold and silver buckles, silver dishes and bowls, and a king’s helmet.
