Description

In 1939, with World War II about to begin, archaeologists in Britain were excited by a discovery from 1,300 years ago. Inside a grassy mound at Sutton Hoo, in Suffolk, they unearthed the remains of an Anglo-Saxon ship, possibly the tomb of a 7th-century nobleman. The wooden ship had rotted away, but its outline, and some of the treasures buried with it remained. Among the gold, silver and iron was a sword, a shield and a warrior's helmet, which is probably the most iconic of all Anglo-Saxon museum treasures.

Discover the Sutton Hoo find with your class using this helmet, replica of the one found in Suffolk. Measuring 28 x 20 cm, this resource is great for artefact handling and creating a focal point for your study of the Anglo-Saxons. Examining and using artefacts as historical evidence not only helps children appreciate the ingenuity of people in the past, but also contributes to a broad and balanced understanding of history. Includes teacher's notes. Please note, the helmets may contain a layer of grease when first shipped, this is to prevent rusting and maintain the high quality of the materials.
