The Anglo-Saxon burial ship and the artefacts found in Sutton Hoo caused a sensation in the weeks before war broke out, and the story still fascinates people today.

Saturday's East Anglian Daily Times has an 8-page special supplement commemorating the discovery and the events around the stunning discovery made in a quiet county field.

It is a one-off special, so make sure you buy your copy this weekend.
