Be the first to review this product

One of the most outstanding finds at the Sutton Hoo Ship Burial was the Great Gold Buckle. The buckle was made of gold with densely interwoven and interpenetrating ribbon animals rendered in chip-carving on the front. This stunning piece was expertly engineered by Anglo-Saxon craftsmen and was probably made for one of 4 kings: Raedwald who was overlord of the English kingdoms between AD616 and his death (at the latest in 627, probably in 625/626), Eorpwald (died 627/628) and co-regents Sigebert and Ecric, who both died fighting Penda of Mercia in AD637. The Great Gold Buckle is now on display in the British Museum.

Comes complete with display/gift box.
