Coins found give a rough indication of the date of the burial. Scholars concluded that the grave belonged to the age of Raedwald, King of the East Angles, High King of the English People. Many suspected, but cannot be certain, that this was the grave of Raedwald himself. King Raedwald died around AD625. His story is told by the historian Bede. Sutton Hoo may be the royal cemetery of Raedwald's family, the Wuffings.
