Sutton Hoo Society

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 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.

Notes

The National Trust took over the site in 2002, and we actively support them in their aim to promote, protect and preserve this unique place. We continue to give guided tours of the burial site, and run a comprehensive training programme for volunteers who wish to become guides and give exhibition talks. We organize conferences, lectures and field trips, and produce a twice-yearly magazine for our members. Our funding policy enables us to commission or offer financial support to a broad mix of academic research and archaeological projects and publications.
