The Sutton Hoo burial site has been dated 7th century AD and is thought to be that of Rædwald ruler of the East Angles. Among the many treasures at the head of a suit of decorative mail armor was this iron helmet (replica) tin leaf and bronze were pure decoration. There is what appears to be a bird framing the eyes, nose and forehead.
Sutton Hoo bottles
These bottle were found in the burial chamber of Sutton Hoo. As with all other wood artifacts from Sutton Hoo, these artifacts are a reconstruction. All that remained of the bowls was the metal rim of the bottle - the wood would have long since rotted away. Bottles of this sort were used as drinking vessels.
