Sutton Hoo Anglo Saxon Ghost Ship Rebuild

in #photography3 months ago

I spent the weekend at Tranmer House formerly Sutton Hoo House in Suffolk to explore the Anglo Saxon burial mounds two of which contained full size ancient ships and the largest Anglo Saxon treasure find ever. (Video is in editing coming soon)
I thought it might be a good idea to show you a glimpse of the discovery.

The photo below shows the ghostly imprint of the remains of a 90 foot long Anglo Saxon ship buried in the 6th century.
The acidic soil destroyed any organic material like bodies, wood and cloth but it's iron rivets and many precious gold, silver and gemstones survived.

The Dig revealed this sand impression of the ship.


The Dig movie covers a lot of interesting things but it's a tad Hollywood.

The real story is much more interesting.
Basil Brown a local penniless self taught archeologist was engaged to carry out the work by Edith Pretty the wealthy landowner in 1939.

Up until this point very little was known about the Anglo Saxons in terms of relics or their history and culture in general. They were formerly thought to have been pretty primitive.

The ship is being rebuilt using the same tools and methods that would have been used by the Anglo Saxon boat builders.
Made from oak these ships predate the Vikings ships by about 200 years.

1400 years ago the Deben river below would have been full of similar ships trading with places as far away as Syria, North Africa and beyond.


What is an Anglo Saxon you ask?

The Germanic tribes of Angeln, Saxony and Jutes. They sailed to Britannia after the Roman's left in AD 410.

They introduced new gold and silver coinage to England.


"Angle land” became England and the English as a distinct albeit mixed cultural group began.

Curiously if you ask an English person about their roots they often say Anglo Saxon without hesitation?

I wonder if they are aware that they are basically saying that they are all foreigners?

What do you think?

This is my killer line for my EDL member brother 😂
(Even worse, our DNA is 55% Viking and most of the rest is "Brit" in one form or another ie up from Nubia - I love it)!

I'm always fascinated by the engineering, communication and organisation involved in earlier societies - much more complex than we imagine. I must make a trip to see the site.

Hi Shani, o dear

my EDL member brother 😂

I've got one of them too🤦‍♂️😂

It's well worth a visit. They were pretty smart people for sure. Not the dark ages nonsense we usually hear about this period.

I'm looking forward to editing the footage I captured. Even I'm excited to see the video lol 🎬🎥😂👍🏼

Yes, looking forward to the video 😍

👍🏼🎬🎥 me too.

I enjoyed The Dig, but I've not been there yet. Need to remedy that some time. We have so much amazing history in this country. Makes me laugh when people complain about 'immigrants', even more so when it's those in the USA.

The Dig movie was enjoyable but a little bit salacious to spice up the story?

Film companies think the public won't sit through a factually accurate depiction?

people complain about 'immigrants', even more so when it's those in the USA.

We've got plenty of ignorant uninformed people in Britain too.

There's a shocking lack of self knowledge about these days?

Ignorance is the enemy of all.

As long as they are European immigrants, it hardly matters. With the Canaanites, whom the Bible does not forbid without reason, I would become suspicious.

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 😀

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 👍🏼

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? 😂👍🏼


Exactly these trade routes are ancient.👍🏼


Thank you, yes I also find it very fascinating how through war and genocide you have managed to obscure the ancestry of the (supposedly) lost tribes of Israel like this and they don't remember who they are.


Indeed, colonialism and capitalism wreak their savagery without discrimination.

And soon communism under the guise of leadership care. I study the biblical scriptures and think that everything is ready for the reign of the devil, which is in Revelation. May God be with us.

Thanks @teamuksupport much appreciated 👍🏼

The first group of the lost tribes of Israel are said to have left for Europe after the Egyptian captivity via the Phoenician trade routes...
The ships of Tyros-Hiram, Israel-David and the Assyrian ships sailed the seas, which led to being called Phoenicians regardless of their nationality, even the Greeks.

Thank you for your contribution, I love that, because they want to make our ancestry disappear here.

Thus the lost tribes of Israel are the Europeans, Irish, Scots, Celts, Goths....

Thanks for your interesting comments.

There is substantial evidence that trade was indeed being carried out between the people's of the British archipelago and way beyond Assyria over 6,000 years ago.

Gold and tin was traded from Ireland and Cornwall to Canaan (modern day Lebanon and Israel) via the Phoenician trade routes.

If you ask a Lebanese person their roots story they will tell you they are Phoenician. As seen in this video where the trade routes were discussed.

Thanks for the luv shares 👍🏼

because they want to make our ancestry disappear here.

Exactly. If an invader wants to dominate new people's and territory it destroys the history, culture and language of the conquered people. All of the Gaelic languages were banned

This was followed in 1537 with The Statute of Ireland – An Act for the English Order Habit and Language that prohibited the use of the Irish language in the Irish Parliament. In 1541, further legislation was passed which banned the use of Irish in the areas of Ireland then under English rule.

Some tactics never change.

You're the bomb! That's what it looks like, they invade and take over or destroy our culture.
We don't hear anything about the Celts any more, they falsify history and the Khazars pretend to be the descendants of the Israelites. What a lie!

Thank you for your detailed explanation, your knowledge of the legal oppression of the Irish and their language.

The royal viper Elisabet has no business on the Irish/Scottish throne.

Thank you for your video, I will enjoy watching it tonight. 😊

Zara 1.png

Ireland to the English, because of the call to go to war against us Germans. World War 1.
Irish/Scots- Zara Judah
Germans- Perez Judah
they are the largest tribe of the sons of Jacob and their union is seen in the flag the English have appropriated.

The English are as foreign occupied as all European countries.
The channel YHVH Germany is awesome, but everything is in German... you should check it out.

Thanks I will look into it. I do have a small amount of the German language that I can call upon.

England is as European as any country on the continent no matter how much some people want to deny it.

Scotland was first settled by the Irish recent research claims which turns the whole Scotia model on its head. 🤦‍♂️😂👍🏼

You are right, the English also belong to us Europeans, just like the Americans, the population I would not want to talk bad, but the rulers who have crept in among the Europeans and plunder them, in wars hetzten and worse.

One could say, the trick is obvious to me and that they make this since centuries.

SCOTA is a good keyword, because it is the descendants of David of the line Perez Judah.
The prophet Jeremiah who prophesied in the time of the last king Zedekiah of Judah, after the execution of the sons of Zedekiah by the Babylonians, brought the only female descendants of David to Ireland.... and fled from the Babylonians.

The two daughters of Zedekiah Tamar Teah Tephi and Scota.

Tamar Teah Tephi, who married the Irish/Scottish King Eochaid of the line Zarah Judah, to preserve the line Perez Judah.

You can see this here by the flag, which does not belong to the English.
The harp is the symbol of David Perez Judah and the red indented lion with the ribbon around it is an allusion to the red crimson thread that Zarah had tied around her hand at birth.

Zarah and Perez the sons of the tribal father Judah were twins.
That is why they say 13 tribes 12 nations of Israel, because Zarah and Perez are one nation and we are also the most oppressed.

!PIZZA !LUV for you.

Oh man I'd love to see Sutton Hoo. Such a fascinating story. Imagine finding that in your back yard!

I'm working on the video which will show the site in great detail. I took some aerial film of the whole site with my drone. The whole burial site is massive with many mounds. 👍🏼

Incredible! How the hell did they manage to sail with it so far? I would not take the trip.

They were very accomplished sailors and the methods they used were quite simple but effective.

They basically sailed along the coastlines of the known world and they would be very aware of the stars in the sky to indicate their position.

They also had an early form of compass known as a lodeston which was magnetic and would point North.

Not such Dark Ages after all. 😂👍🏼

Um, makes sense, if they sailed along the coastlines. I was imagining something like crossing oceans 🤣

These early seafarers travelled far and wide and did indeed cross oceans like the North Atlantic. By following ice flows, stars and coastlines the Vikings landed in North America just a couple of hundred years later. 🤯👍🏼

Too cool!

Isn't it just amazing? 🤯👍🏼
