The Deben Rowing Club were allowed to carry a boat onto the ship burial at Sutton Hoo this afternoon. I was invited to view the proceedings. The group photograph gives an idea of the size of the mound. The rowing boat was carried up from the Deben and through the wood, led in a procession by the Mayor of Woodbridge.
