Her Say: extraordinary women of Sutton Hoo

2018 marks 100 years since some women were granted a parliamentary vote. To mark the centenary we are celebrating the women who significantly contributed to the history of Sutton Hoo. Discover more about the women who helped reveal the burial...

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

In the Sitting Room of Tranmer House you can discover the life of Edith Pretty before and after she triggered the dig which rewrote history.

In the Dining Room, the life of Peggy Piggott, an archaeologist brought in to excavate the burial chamber, will be explored and the career she went on to have after her time at Sutton Hoo. Mercie Lack and Barbra Waggstaff who were 'amature' photographers and contributed the majority of photographs of the dig will be celebrated.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
