Sutton Hoo Gold
Part of the Historia series. Consideration of the Sutton Hoo gold objects in the light of new discoveries of Anglo-Saxon goldwork with Helen Geake
- Booking advisable
- Admission applies
In 1939, the Sutton Hoo Mound 1 burial revolutionised views of early Anglo-Saxon art and culture. 60 years later, the Portable Antiquities Scheme began to record individual finds of 7th-century goldwork. It now has about 400 records of gold Anglo-Saxon objects, not including the spectacular Staffordshire Hoard. This talk will look at what the new finds tell us. Was there ever a 'Sutton Hoo workshop'? Is there still something special about the craftsmanship of this remarkable assemblage?

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 or
- Standard admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.
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: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.
|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|
*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
