Experts continue to debate mystery of Sutton Hoo

Archaeologists agree that the person buried at Sutton Hoo in East Anglia at the beginning of the 7th century must have been a king, but opinions differ on which king he was. New studies seem to indicate that the ship burial held Raedwald, King of east Anglia and King of the Britains.

National Trust archaeologist Angus Wainwright believes in the Raedwald theory because of the lavish treasures found in the grave and because of Christian objects also found there. Some experts are still unsure partly due to the fact that a second ship burial at the site was robbed, leaving the mystery of that grave unsolved.
