Silver Sutton Hoo Ship Pendant
Handcrafted in Cornwall
Silver Sutton Hoo Ship pendant – silver pendant based on the Sutton Hoo Ship. Comes on an 18″ fine filigree chain.
Sutton Hoo in Sufolk, England, is the site of one of the most significant archaeological digs in British history. The ship burial produced the greatest collection of treasures ever discovered in the UK, and rewrote the early medieval history of England. Buried in a chamber, built into the centre of the ship, was believed to be King Rædwald of East Anglia, many precious artefacts of pottery, metalwork, gold and gems were uncovered.
The design of this pendant is based on a reconstruction, produced by the Science Museum – the imprints left in the sand clearly showed the shape of the Anglo Saxon ship.
