RE: Sutton Hoo Anglo Saxon Ghost Ship Rebuild

That's interesting, discovering the ship and the treasure. Do you know happened to the tresure in the end?

I see the rebuild is proudly sponsored by Jewson πŸ˜€

Sort: Β 

Edith Pretty was awarded all the treasure by the inquest as it was found on her land.
An inquest has to be held when treasure is found on a burial site or cemetery.

Two days after the inquest she donated it all to the British museum so that the public could see it.

This treasure is of course priceless.

A truly remarkable woman πŸ‘πŸΌ

The build is always looking for sponsors as it is all done by volunteers.

My daughter donated a rivet for the boat in my name. Which is very cool to think on.

Maybe someone will dig up my rivet in 1400 years time? πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸΌ
