The Wuffing Education Study Centre
at Sutton Hoo
Wuffing Education Study Days at Sutton Hoo provide in-depth explorations for newcomers, enthusiasts, and specialists in the archaeology, history, landscapes, language, literature, art, and music of medieval England in general and of East Anglia in particular.
||Study Day themes include the Literature, Art, Coinage, Music, Landscape and the History of the Anglo-Saxon and Medieval period. Write, email or phone and we will make sure you are kept informed of future events. See the current programme of events|
||The emphasis of the Study Days is on the quality of the presenters. We choose only speakers who are widely recognised for their specialist knowledge and who are also effective communicators with good presentation skills. Many are national or international experts in their field and have appeared on, or been consultants to, TV and the media.|
||Study Days normally start at 10.15am and finish about 4pm allowing time to wander the grounds of the Sutton Hoo estate and the burial site itself.|
||The Study Days usually have no more than about 30 participants to ensure that you can have the chance for a dialogue with the speakers and with other participants.|
||Most Study Days take place in The Old Court within sight of the burial mounds at Sutton Hoo, courtesy of the National Trust.|
||Study Days cost no more than £38, which includes a full day of lectures, access to the NT site, parking, coffee, tea and biscuits throughout the day, and access to the NT exhibition. You can bring a picnic lunch or eat in the excellent National Trust restaurant with views down to the River Deben.If its your first Study Day then you can have it at the introductory rate of just £25.
