Sutton Hoo, The Dig, Basil Brown, and Edith Pretty

Who would have expected a film about an archaeological dig to be so compelling? Sutton Hoo appeals to the imagination because this is one of the few finds from the Anglo-Saxon era, and has offered us a rare insight into the material culture of the Anglo-Saxon nobility. The film The Dig focuses on the excavations at Sutton Hoo. Landowner Edith Pretty hired archaeologist Basil Brown to excavate the burial mounds on her estate. Basil Brown had a lot of practical experience but no classical training. That is why he was put aside by other archaeologists when it became clear how important the find at Sutton Hoo was and the government started to interfere. The film shows the problems surrounding heritage, ownership and appropriation of remnants from the human past.
