Milsoms Kesgrave Hall Hotel in Ipswich is lucky to have a superb National Trust Property just minutes away near Woodbridge in Suffolk. In 2000, archaeologists uncovered numerous Anglo-Saxon graves and cremations in an unexplored area of the Sutton Hoo site in Suffolk. Their findings have now been revealed in a new exhibition. ‘Hidden Hoo’ begins to tell the exciting story of the excavation with many of the original finds on display (on loan from the British Museum).

The graves reveal our ancestors from a cross section of the community, from local aristocracy, warriors, bodyguards and farmer. In addition, visitors are able to follow the trail which leads you to some of the graves. With imagination, you’ll even see a landscape that was not so different to the person living some 1,400 years ago.

The exhibition is open to visitors, with an admission charge of £7.15 for adults (£18.05 Family) onto the whole Sutton Hoo site. More information can be found at www.nationaltrust.org.uk/sutton-hoo
