- Publisher's Summary
- Suffolk, the county of the Sutton Hoo and Mildenhall treasures and the core of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of East Anglia, has a particularly resonant ancient and medieval past. This copiously illustrated book covers the history and archaeology of the county from the time of the first farmers to the coming of the Normans. Peter Warner gives details of recent excavations at sites of international significance such as Sutton Hoo, West Stow and Brandon. He compares the spectacular hoard of treasure discovered recently at Hoxne with Suffolk's other great Roman find, the Mildenhall Treasure. He also explores Ipswich, England's earliest Anglo-Saxon town and Bury St Edmunds, its best planned Norman town. Much of our knowledge of the early history of Suffolk stems from Domesday Book, and the author assesses its evidence in the light of recent research.
