Dunwich was the major seaport and Capital of East Anglia. It is now underwater but for a small village and friary ruins. Sometimes known as the British 'Atlantis', it is hoped that underwater cameras will be able to film parts of it.

Why was Sutton Hoo important in Beowulf?

There is no direct connection between Sutton Hoo and Beowulf that we know of. Sutton Hoo is the burial place of a number of Anglo-Saxon people, one of whom might have been a king of East Anglia. Beowulf is an Anglo-Saxon poem about a man named Beowulf, a fictional or legendary hero of approximately the same time as the Sutton Hoo burials, who came from southern Sweden and fought a dragon in Denmark.Nevertheless, the two are connected culturally, because the treasures found at Sutton Hoo are examples of the sorts of things Beowulf might have owned and used. The result, of course, is that pictures of articles found at Sutton Hoo are often used to illustrate editions of Beowulf.
