Rendlesham Revealed Virtual Exhibition

This exhibition takes visitors on a 400-year journey to reveal how the Anglo-Saxon royal settlement at Rendlesham grew and developed in the 5th-8th centuries. This story is brought to life with over 150 archaeological objects from the settlement, ranging from food remains to gold jewellery. The exhibition was originally on temporary display at National Trust's Sutton Hoo in 2023.

You can also view a selection of objects in-person currently on display at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village and Museum until 23 July 2024.
