Thegns of Mercia at Sutton Hoo

26-29 May 2023

As part of the Woodbridge Saxon Festival 2023, our Consultant James was honoured to be part of the Thegns of Mercia encampment during the bank holiday last weekend.

Byrga Geniht enjoys a close partnership with Thegns of Mercia, the leading heritage outreach group for the civilisation of the early Anglo-Saxons. James was thrilled to see the Sutton Hoo Ship Company's reconstruction of the Mound 1 vessel has his favourite shape!
