Remaking the Sutton Hoo
The making of a museum quality replica stone has provided new information and fresh insights which may help us answer many of the questions that have been asked about this beautiful and puzzling object.
The techniques used in making the stone
are explained as is the geometry embedded within the overall design.
There is also a critical review of the existing literature on
the subject and a series of essays on aspects of Anglo-Saxon society
that may be related to the making of the original stone.
