sutton hoo helmet (bm)

Another shot from the British Museum. This helmet is linked to the context of the Anglo-Saxon poem, Beowulf. Listen to archaeologist Angus Wainwright and others describe the history of this object and the grave ship where it was found. This shot is the replica mask - the original was next to it but I did not get a good shot of it. Listen to the history of this object by clicking here
