We love this site. It even speaks the text to you. See some of the world's most precious finds including that Sutton Hoo helmet. Amazing. We can't get enough of this site, children love the navigation. This is what the web was meant for. Just type "Sutton Hoo" into the search box.
Go to the interactive tour to investigate the land where this amazing discovery was uncovered. The text may be slightly challenging for KS2, but with a teacher's support this can be used effectively.
