THE ANGLO-SAXON SHIP
with Paul Constantine

For the last six years Paul Constantine has researched the reconstruction of the 90ft ship
buried at Sutton Hoo in AD625. It will be taking shape in a purpose-built Longshed on the
Woodbridge waterfront adjacent to the iconic Tide Mill. The Anglo- Saxons that came to
this part of the country flourished – what attracted them? This talk examines the
construction techniques of Scandinavian ships from 325BC to about 1000AD and
explores the importance of England’s first warship to East Anglia and our national history.
