Was drawn to this after reading a nice review in the New York Times, and knowing little about Sutton Hoo beyond the famous helmet images. the characters are well drawn but ultimately sketchy. it's a modest effort, but quite listenable and even gentle in its approach to history and the extraordinary find st Sutton Hoo. And it definitely piqued my interest in visiting myself one day. Good readers as well.

Very much a fictionalized account of a significant archeological discovery in England in 1939. The prose is arather dry and factual, but the subject is interesting and the narration is well-done. But don't expect a page-turner, because this is NOT that kind of story.
