Having seen the treasure in the British Museum, I wanted to go the source: Sutton Hoo. And what a lovely place it is!! Quiet, peaceful, with beautiful scenery, the complex is creatively and tastefully laid out, with the inevitable shop and cafe built out of local wood in a style in keeping with the surroundings (lunch was delicious, too). The tumuli are grazed by Suffolk horned sheep, a species apparently on the brink of extinction until a few years ago, the present representatives of which allowed to roam free over the site. There was a skylark singing its little guts out (not-so-obscure literary reference alert).
