This one of the richest archaeological finds in England, a buried long boat in a burial mound with the treasures of a king who was probably one of the last pagan rulers of East Anglia, the unique king’s treasures are now on display at the British Museum.
From the study of the burial ship itself, archaeologists understood more about the Germanic migration routes, the beautiful worked jewellery, with gem stones from far off counties, not usually associated with the Germanic tribes of this historical period.
The high level of the Germanic artistic culture and precise craftsmanship of the jewellers, and from the royal insignia, the archaeologists and enthusiast alike can study the organisation of the Kingdom of the East Angles.
