Sutton Hoo Helmet

Sutton Hoo Helmet

My entry for this weeks Friday Photo Challenge where the topic is ‘Gold’.

The Sutton Hoo Helmet is one of the most important Anglo Saxon finds of all time, this iron and gold helmet was buried in the grave of a warrior chieftain, together with a large number of weapons and a 27-metre-long ship.

Found at Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, Suffolk, the helmet and many other artefacts from the site are now housed in the British Museum, London.
