Ordinary people who discovered incredible treasures

Lovemoney Logo By Hannah Ward-Glenton of Lovemoney | Slide 3 of 37: Byzantine silverware, lavish gold jewellery, an opulent feasting set and fragments of an ornate iron helmet (pictured) were among the hoard of goods. The site was revealed to be the royal burial site of Raedwald, the king of the East Anglia region between 599 AD and 624 AD, making its contents around 1,400 years old. Sutton Hoo is now managed by the National Trust charity, and its fascinating history and discovery is the subject of recent Netflix film The Dig, starring Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes.
