Masterpieces of the British Museum: the Sutton Hoo Helmet

Masterpieces of the British Museum: the Sutton Hoo Helmet
BBC 4, 8.30 pm – 14 Jun 2006

The first of six half-hour programmes profiling some of the British Museum’s greatest treasures starts with the haunting helmet found at Sutton Hoo, East Anglia, in 1939 – which is Britain’s richest ever archaeological find. It may have been worn by the 7th-century Anglo-Saxon King Raedwald. Michael Wood and Angela Care Evans, alongside the British Museum’s curators and experts, are on hand to explain its significance, context and later restoration. PWD
