Sutton Hoo

Today, after four years of renovation and refurbishment, The British Museum in London reopens Room 41, the gallery of Early Medieval Europe. Central to the new display are the treasures from the world famous Anglo-Saxon Sutton Hoo burial ship. Shown is one of these treasures: the Sutton Hoo Purse Lid (7th century) made in gold with cloisonné garnet and millefiori glass, found in Suffolk, England. Admission to Room 41 is free.
