Sutton Hoo – the day of our exhibition

Thought I would let the pictures tell the story again.

We had a lovely day, think we had about 100 people through the door, which was amazing as we had torrential rain, but in the true British fashion we still managed our picnic, but quickly before the heavens opened again.

Our big day (really need to sort that diet out!)
