Book review

A huge mound at Sutton Hoo, fifty kilometers north-east of Ipswich, concealed under a marine vessel measuring about 27 by 4.7 m wide and 1.5 m high, built on clinker technology and designed to operate at oars [400]. The burial chamber in the middle of the ship, but without dumping contained an unusually rich utensils: Byzantine silverware beginning of VI, jewelry cloisonne technique, weapons, signs of royal dignity, finally, a small treasure of gold coins Merovingian (collected about 660-670 years.. according to most numismatists, or about 625, according to Lafuri). This cenotaph should be attributed to either King Redwald (died ca. 625..), Or the king Etelheru (died ca. 655 g..); the absence of a body due either to Christianity or death away from the tomb. It shows a combination very different traditions, the Mediterranean (metal vase from Alexandria and Constantinople), Frankish (coins), Scandinavia, or rather, Swedish (the whole idea of ??burial in a boat, Vendel-type helmet) Finally, Breton (traditional celtic hanging bowl [ 401]). There is no better proof of the fact that the Anglo-Saxon England was not an isolated world, lost on the borders of the ecumene, and its aristocracy participated in all the currents of European civilization.
