The Treasure of Sutton Hoo is the only book published in the USA about this significant excavation of an Anglo-Saxon king's ship burial. Priceless treasure found in the burial chamber, the finest collection of Anglo-Saxon craftsmanship in gold, silver and garnet, could have come only from a royal treasury.

A warrior's face - the strong brows inlaid with red garnets, the nose and mouth gilded and its surface tinned a silvery colour - this is how the Sutton Hoo helmet once appeared to those who saw it.

A warrior's face - the strong brows inlaid with red garnets, the nose and mouth gilded and its surface tinned a silvery colour - this is how the Sutton Hoo helmet once appeared to those who saw it. Beautifully crafted and visually stunning, it would have inspired awe. But it was also fully capable of protecting its wearer in battle. This book explains how it was discovered together with other priceless treasures including a ship in the great mound at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk, by the archaeologist Basil Brown in the late 1930s. He was employed by the owner of the estate, Mrs Edith Pretty, who generously donated the whole find to the British Museum. After painstaking reconstruction, experts were able to compare this very rare helmet to the few others dating to the same period, and also to speculate for whom it might have been created. Today, some 1,400 years after it was buried, it is the centrepiece for the Sutton Hoo burial exhibit in the British Museum - a remarkable testament to Anglo- Saxon power and artistic skill.

This is the story of one of the richest archaeological finds of all times: a ship containing the treasure of a king who was probably the last of the pagan rulers of East Anglia. This unique collection, now largely restored and displayed in a place of honor at the British Museum, tells us much concerning this least documented and most elusive period in English history. This new, revised edition tells the dramatic story of the actual excavation, gives a detailed description of the finds, and appraises the gains to our knowledge of the period. The text has been rewritten to take into account new information, and the original black and white drawings and maps have been supplemented by color plates.
The treasure was discovered in 1939 under a mound at Sutton Hoo, an estate in
Suffolk. It lay in time-worn scraps within the rotted hull of what was once an 80-
foot wooden ship (beloic). When these glittering fragments were studied, they

This reference work covers general works, ornament, folk art, arms and armour, ceramics, clocks and automata, costumes, enamels, furniture, glass, leather, metalwork, musical instruments, textiles, dolls and more.

More than 1000 of these entries are new to the second edition, and approximately half are titles published since 1977. The remainder represent a significant expansion in breadth and depth of the bibliography, with the addition of nearly 500 titles of exhibition and museum catalogues and price guides.

The Staffordshire Hoard: An Anglo-Saxon Treasure tells the story of the Staffordshire Hoard's discovery and acquisition, and the six-year research project that pieced its fragments back together, identified its objects and explored their manufacture. Key chapters discuss the decoration and meaning of the Hoard's intricate ornament, the techniques of Anglo-Saxon craftsmen, the religious and historical background, and hoarding practice in Britain and Europe, to place this most exceptional find in context. Finally, the text explores the impact that the find has had locally, nationally and internationally in the twenty-first century.
