Sutton Hoo is a group of Anglo-Saxon burial mounds overlooking the River Deben in south-east Suffolk. The Sutton Hoo Society does not own or operate the visitor centre at Sutton Hoo. For opening hours and other visitor information please refer to the National Trust website.
The society was founded in 1984 to provide practical support to the Sutton Hoo Research Project, directed by Professor Martin Carver. Following the completion of the excavations in 1991, the society acted as guardians of the site and continued to give guided tours (not currently available) and funded ongoing research.
Over the years we have attracted a world-wide membership, from members of the public who are fascinated by the story of Sutton Hoo, to experts in the field of Anglo-Saxon history and archaeology.
