This week we have been learning about Sutton Hoo. We found out that much of what we know about the Anglo-Saxons comes from graves like the one discovered at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk. At Sutton Hoo, there are eleven mounds or ‘barrows’ dating back to the 7th century. In 1939 archaeologists explored the largest mound and discovered a ship buried in the mound. Fragments of a mask have now been pieced back together. With our new knowledge, we have created our own Sutton Hoo masks using cardboard and paper mache. Today we have spent the day painting and embellishing them with patterns. They look super!
