Historia is a two-day festival of History at Sutton Hoo, featuring a range of guest speakers presenting on all aspects of Anglo-Saxon culture.

One particular highlight will be Stephen Pollington’s talk on the Elder Gods: From the earliest Germanic presence in Britain of which we have any evidence to the completion of the conversion of the Anglo-Saxon kings in the later 600s, Britain had a heathen Germanic culture in some areas for around six centuries. Anglo-Saxon expert Stephen Pollington will look at the evidence for the old gods in England, and the processes of conversion to Christianity.

Other events include talks on King Raedwald, Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham, The Trumpington bed burial and the half-length replica of the mound one ship – Sae Wylfing.
