Live Online Talks – Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham


A new live online series Behind the Scenes: Analysing Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham, with ten talks over ten weeks, starts this autumn.

Rendlesham in Suffolk is known for being the site of an early East Anglian royal settlement, first mentioned by Bede in the 7th century in his Ecclesiastical History of the English People.

After 12 years of archaeological investigation, with thanks to the support from local landowners, we now know more than ever.

For the first time, the specialists will be sharing the cutting-edge results of their recent work analysing the archaeological material. They will tell us what made Rendlesham such a unique place in the early East Anglian kingdom and its connections with the wider Anglo-Saxon world.

The talks are free and will be held online, booking essential. All are welcome, make sure you tell your friends, family and colleagues.


The series is a partnership between two projects: ‘Rendlesham Revealed: Anglo-Saxon Life in South East Suffolk’ funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and ‘Lordship and Landscape in East Anglia 400-800CE’ funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
