The Suffolk Heritage Forum met at Sutton Hoo earlier today. There was an opportunity to climb the temporary tower close the mounds to obtain a better view of the burial site. The outline of the ship was very clear from this height, in part helped by the different colour of the grass. It was also possible to make our the anti-glider defences from the Second World War that cut across the field system. The viewing platform provided wonderful views over the Deben and Woodbridge making the relationship between the river the burial site much clearer.
