Professor Chris Scull: Recent discoveries at Rendlesham: the archaeology and contexts of a 7th- century East Anglian royal settlement

Recent survey at Rendlesham has identified an extensive and materially wealthy settlement of the 5th to 8th centuries AD that can be identified as the site of the 7th-century East Anglian vicus regius recorded by Bede. This lecture explores the archaeology of the site, and some of the challenges it poses to received opinion about economy and society in south-east England during the 5th to 8th centuries AD.
