After Roman troops were withdrawn in 406, Anglo-Saxon pirates raided the south and east of England. From the 430's onwards boat loads of invaders rowed across the North Sea. The invaders were warriors and seafarers and included Angles from South Denmark, Saxons from their west and Jutes. This reconstructed boat based on evidence found at Sutton Hoo, is half the size of the one found buried at Sutton Hoo. It was built to see how seaworthy the ship was. It performed very well under sail.
