Year 4 Reading Challenge- Autumn 2

Sutton Hoo

By about 600, England was divided into small Anglo-Saxon kingdoms each ruled by a king. Much of what we know about the Anglo-Saxons comes from graves like the one discovered at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk.Near the River Deben in Suffolk, at Sutton Hoo, are eleven mounds or ‘barrows’ dating back to the 7th century. In 1939 archaelogists explored the largest mound and discovered a ship buried in the mound. On a small hill above the river Deben in Suffolk is a field, covered with grassy mounds of different sizes. For several hundred years what lay under the mounds remained a mystery.

What happened at Sutton Hoo?

About 66 years ago, an archaeologist called Basil Brown started digging under the mounds. The mounds are Anglo Saxon graves and the contents show the technology and traditions of a culture that was in England 1,600 years ago. Basil discovered that the reason why it was so big. It was hiding a huge wooden ship buried under the soil. The ship had rotted away, but the shape of it was clearly left behind in the earth. The ship was 27 metres long and 4.25 meters wide at its widest point (almost ninety-feet long and fifteen-feet wide). It would have taken about 20 oarsmen on either side to row it! The ship had been put there and used as a grave. Archaeologists think that the ship was dragged to the top of the hill from the river below. It was then placed in a ditch that had been specially dug for it. A hut was built in the middle of the ship and the coffin and treasures placed inside. The ship was then completely covered with a mound of earth. The person was buried in the ship because they believed that this was the best way to reach the After Life.

What did they find?

The objects in the grave would have been the personal possessions or weapons of the person ‘buried’ with the ship to use in the afterlife. A sword was found alongside the body, by the right arm. The end of the handle of the sword was made of gold and contained a precious red jewel.  The sword was made of iron. The sword was the most important weapon in Anglo-Saxon times. It was often passed down from father to son. Warriors were buried with their swords beside them. The person in the ship was buried with lots of expensive household goods, including rich clothes, pieces for playing games, and a lyre (a bit like a guitar). This large bronze bowl is one of three that would have hung on tripods in a great hall. It was filled with wine or water, so that people could dip their cups into it, or wash their fingers after feasting. The silver from the ship burial is the largest collection of silver ever recovered from a grave. It was probably used as tableware during feasting in the great hall. The bowls were made in the Middle East in about AD 500. Finding them in the grave tells us that trade between England and the rest of Europe was common in Anglo Saxon times. The Anglo-Saxons liked to show off their wealth. This is the lid of a leather purse that would have hung from a belt. The purse, with gold decoration, is the richest one found from the Saxons time. The purse contained 37 gold coins. These coins helped to date the burial and provide some clues about who was buried in the grave. The coins date around AD 613.

Were all Anglo-Saxons buried in ships?

Ship burials were reserved for the most powerful people. Sometimes the burial ships were cast adrift in the sea, sometimes the ships were buried on land. Important men, especially if they were warriors, were buried with weapons such as a sword, spears and a shield. Most ordinary Anglo-Saxon people were cremated (burnt) after they died, their remain were placed in urns and buried in the ground. The burial was of an important Anglo-Saxon chief, probably King Raedwald who ruled East Anglia in the seventh century. He was one of the most powerful Saxon kings.

      Dear diary,
      Today I have travelled a long way from home to come to Sutton Hoo, where very aincent people had been buried. Well I’m not talking about aincent Egyptians but I am talking about the history of the Anglo Saxon. As I was digging the ground up I had found a amazing elegent weapon that the rich Anglo Saxons would’ve used.All these weapons had crusty bits of blood from all the killing. After I digged the weapons aout I also discovered some bones of an Anglo Saxons.(that’s when I found out that it was a graveyard)
      After we had digged most of the graveyard we also found a big gigantic ship,you can’t imagine how big it was. The ship was about 27 metres long and 4.25 meters wide.What a tiering day it was I am going to get some rest.I hope to write about another big adventure tomorrow.
      Yours sincerely Umama.

    Dear Diary,
    It is a stressful place to be especially in battles.
    We had once entered one and got injured badly.it is very hard in the battle to make food and be cautious of any fights around us. I only survived the day with hard bread and nothing else. We are currently in the most targeted place, Mercia. We are very dirty and have no protection in battle, just only a sword. I am very hungry and barely get by. We are in AD 612 and people are dying because of the battle and the Plague. We have to be cautious of both as anyone can break the door and kill us. Same for the Plague, but have to be sure that rats are not coming. We would be very grateful for jewels and rich things.
    I hope this battle all stops.
    Dear Diary, I am now going to have a rest, bye.

    Dear Diary,
    You can’t believe what I did today. I was amazed.
    Everything started when I went Sutton Hoo. Someone told me the shocking news about treasures in the ground. I started digging at that moment. When I dug deeper in the ground I found a ship buried in the ground. It was a rotten boat but it was still use full to find any pieces of treasure. I was completely shocked.
    I looked through the doors of the ship and I found a rich warrior with a sword beside him. On the sword there was a red gem. This was the best time ever. That sword was the most important weapon in the Anglo-Saxon times. I felt excited to see what this rich warrior had. I noticed that the warrior was wearing rich clothes. He had household goods. Eventually I found a purse with golden decorations. I could not wait to see what was going to be in there. I opened the purse carefully in case there was something precious in it. In the purse I found 37 gold coins. I could not believe what was happening right now. But soon I was wondering when the rich warrior was buried. I looked carefully on the coins and I found a date on them. This was a very good clue. The date written on the coin was 613 AD.
    I had such a wonder full day today and I can’t wait to find some new treasures. It was unbelievable.
    Bye

    Because I found a grave that contained someone it was so interesting and I just noticed that it was from the Angelo Saxon era.So then Instead of saying grave I said mounds because it’s another word for Grave I had so much fun.Every day now started exploring the ship and it had lots of treasures
    That was my diary.

    The objects in the grave would have been the personal possessions or weapons of the person ‘buried’ with the ship to use in the afterlife. A sword was found alongside the body, by the right arm. The end of the handle of the sword was made of gold and contained a precious red jewel. This shows that the person was rich because the sword was made of gold.

    Today I discovered Sutton Hoo. It was an amazing sight! It was impressive that we found a golden sword. It even contained a precious, red jewel. The ship was 27 metres long and 4.25 meters wide at its widest point (almost ninety-feet long and fifteen-feet wide). I hope there is more to discover!
