The Sutton Hoo helmet is aligned to King Raedwald of East Anglia who ruled between 599 and 624 AD. In this year the ship burial of Sutton Hoo must have taken place. Raedwald was the third king of this dynasty following his grandfather Wuffa and his father Tyttla. Their dynasty was called the Wuffinga. They ruled a well-organised, wealthy community which maintained trade relations to Scandinavia and the continent which was still in his Merovingian epoque. In 624 AD the Neutrien (pre-runner of France) king was Chlothar II. the Young and in Austrasien (pre-runner of Germany) Dagobert I. the Good (603-639) governed since just one year.

Other ruling kings in this very year 624 AD were only Suinthila of the West Goths in Spain, Eochaid of Dalriada in later Scotland and Domhnall as High King in Ireland. In Byzance Herakleios I. (575-641) was ruling and the contemporary Pope in Rome was Bonifatius V. who died in 625.

Why was Sutton Hoo important in Beowulf?

There is no direct connection between Sutton Hoo and Beowulf that we know of. Sutton Hoo is the burial place of a number of Anglo-Saxon people, one of whom might have been a king of East Anglia. Beowulf is an Anglo-Saxon poem about a man named Beowulf, a fictional or legendary hero of approximately the same time as the Sutton Hoo burials, who came from southern Sweden and fought a dragon in Denmark.Nevertheless, the two are connected culturally, because the treasures found at Sutton Hoo are examples of the sorts of things Beowulf might have owned and used. The result, of course, is that pictures of articles found at Sutton Hoo are often used to illustrate editions of Beowulf.


What does the term Anglo Saxon refer to?

In the period between the Roman Empire and the Norman Conquest, the British Isles were invaded and settled by two tribes of people from northern Germany. These tribes were the Angles and the Saxons, and the term Anglo-Saxon refers to the language spoken by them upon moving into Britain.


When did the Anglo-Saxons appear?

The Anglo-Saxon period begins in the fifth Century A.D., when the Angles, a Germanic tribe from what is now Denmark, came to Britain, which they re-named Engla-lond or "Land of the Angles." The Saxons began coming at about the same time. The period is generally considered to be over with the Norman Conquest of 1066. Our English language has two major dialects to this day, the Anglic dialect of the north, called Scots or Doric or Lallands depending on one's politics, and the Saxon dialect of the South, called Standard English.


How long did the Anglo saxons live for?

They've never left. They arrived in the 5th century and became part of the "English" in the 9th/10th century. The period of their rule came to an end with the Norman invasion of 1066 but like much of the nations mongrel history they just merged becoming Anglo-Norman. While the ruling class was Norman and then Anglo Norman the underlying people were considered mostly descended from Anglo Saxon (although Jutes, Norse and Celts are all mixed in there as well) and the term has stayed with England. As you can see from the above, we're just a crazy mixed-up, yet fantastic nation!


Do you capitalize Anglo-Saxon?

Yes. It should be written as "Anglo-Saxon".
