Abstract

This paper revisits the links between the material culture and the depositional practices found at Sutton Hoo, the seventh-century royal burial from eastern England and the princely burials from Uppland in Sweden. A hypothesis is developed that what the regions share is their common relationship to a core proto-Norse region probably based in Skaane and the Danish islands.
