The National Trust has today unveiled a new £2.4m project to transform the Sutton Hoo burial ground.
The 7th century ground, near Woodbridge in Suffolk, is considered one of the world’s most important archaeological sites.
Plans include building a raised platform to provide views over the entire burial ground and to the River Deben beyond it.
An enhanced formal education programme, an art and craftsmanship programme and new volunteering roles will also be introduced.
The project has received a £150,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to progress through its early development stages.
The National Trust says it will consult with the local community about the overall shape of the plans.
“We want to enrich and enhance the experience people have when visiting Sutton Hoo.
“This special place is about so much more than the treasure, it tells the hugely significant story of how the first English people lived their lives.
“Their significance continues to resonate down the centuries in our language, our craft traditions and our connections to land and landscape.
