1400 years ago a great leader died and was buried in his ship at Sutton Hoo. The ship would have been hauled up the hill from the river to the grave. It would have taken a great deal of effort, so the man must have been very important. The great man was laid amongst precious objects from every corner of the known world in a celebration of his power.
