Anglo–Saxons and Vikings

The Museum's unparalleled Anglo-Saxon and Viking collections range from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea, and from North Africa to Scandinavia.

The centrepiece of the collections is the Anglo-Saxon ship burial from Sutton Hoo in Suffolk – one of the most spectacular and important discoveries in British archaeology and on permanent display in Room 41.
