We are excited to announce a new live online series Behind the Scenes: Analysing Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham, with ten talks over ten weeks, starting this Autumn.

Rendlesham in Suffolk is known for being the site of an early East Anglian royal settlement, first mentioned by Bede in the 7th century in his Ecclesiastical History of the English People.

After 12 years of archaeological investigation, with thanks to the support from local landowners, we now know more than ever.

For the first time, the specialists will be sharing the cutting-edge results of their recent work analysing the archaeological material. They will tell us what made Rendlesham such a unique place in the early East Anglian kingdom and its connections with the wider Anglo-Saxon world.

Professor Christopher Scull will be kicking off the series on the 9th September 2020 by introducing the archaeology and what this can tell us about the rulers and the kingdom of the East Angles.

Over the following ten weeks the specialists will cover many different subjects to bring this internationally important site to life, from Anglo-Saxon money and metalworking to landscape and place names – get your questions ready to ask the experts live.

The talks are free and will be held online, booking essential.
All are welcome, make sure you tell your friends, family and colleagues.
