The graves of the dead from long ago can teach us a lot about their customs and beliefs as well as provide evidence of what important to them and how they lived their lives. When archaeologists unearthed the burial chamber in mound 1, they were amazed at what they found. Treasures, weapons and sacred objects. English gold ornaments and Byzantine silver, were laid out in the centre of the ship. The treasure was removed and stored until the end of World War 2.
