Archaeology at Rendlesham, Suffolk: an East Anglian royal settlement of the time of Sutton Hoo

Recent survey at Rendlesham has identified an exceptionally extensive and materially wealthy settlement of the 5th to 8th centuries AD that can be identified as the site of the 7th-century East Anglian vicus regius or royal settlement recorded by Bede. This lecture explores the archaeology of the site, and some of the challenges it poses to received opinion about economy and society in south-east England during the 5th to 8th centuries AD.
