Sutton Hoo Treasures

Friday 9th April 11-3

Enthusiastic and engaged small groups of visitors enjoyed handling, discussing and relating The Sainsbury Centre outreach collection to the Sutton Hoo exhibits. The collaboration with Sutton Hoo confirmed that an object can tell a very valuable and individual story. Objects from Northern Australia, Papua New Guinea and Meso America contrasted fantastically with the Anglo Saxon treasures. Over 30 people of a wide variety of ages enjoyed the experience of being able to hold exhibits close and relate them to past, present, local and global contexts.
