Time Team is delighted to be working in partnership with the National Trust to carry out new cutting-edge geophysics and photogrammetry surveys at the official Anglo-Saxon Royal Burial Ground at Sutton Hoo, and adjacent cemeteries.
Using state-of-the-art technology, this landmark project will shed new light on the iconic site, enabling us to map the landscape above and below ground in definition previously unimaginable, potentially identifying new features for the first time. Through drone-mounted photogrammetry, we can build a fully immersive and interactive 3D model of the site.
Alongside our filming of the Sutton Hoo Ship’s Company’s reconstruction, we’re thrilled to be involved in two wonderful projects linked to one of Britain’s most iconic archaeological sites, and look forward to sharing more details in the weeks and months ahead…
We have a whole range of exclusive Sutton Hoo content coming your way over the coming weeks, from updates on the build from the Longshed to interviews with key players and authorities on Sutton Hoo, including: author of The Dig, John Preston; Time Team’s resident Anglo-Saxon expert, Dr Sam Newton; Oxford University’s Professor Helena Hamerow; Professor Martin Carver; skilled shipwrights and much more.
