Dress up at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk

Child in Anglo Saxon costume looking at the reconstructed warrior's helmet at Sutton Hoo

Kids can transform themselves into mini Anglo-Saxons at Sutton Hoo.

Find the dressing up box at the back of the exhibition hall for helmets, wooden swords and clothing. Once you’ve done that take a look at the Anglo-Saxon King, surrounded by his treasure and try being an archaeologist for the day in the ‘Let’s Dig It’ trench.

‘I enjoyed the dressing up,’ says one of our visitors, Daniel. ‘I really want to come again another day.’
