Discovered in 1936, a year later the clothing was studied by Gutorm Gjessing, and dated due to its' cut and style to the late 15th or early 16th centuries.
(Gjessing, 1938: 70, Hügel, 2002: 16, Kiel, 2003;: 1, Løvlid, 2009: 19) It was not until the 1980s that interest in the outfit was rekindled, and a series of attempts to date the incomplete skeleton and clothing was undertaken.
Set in 1,065 acres of Bedfordshire countryside and dating from the 18th century, this place is renowned for its rich history.
With traditional interiors, lavish style and antique furnishings, its décor pays respectful homage to the characters that once frequented the mansion.
Elegantly preserved, the lavish Edwardian style remains in the choice of décor with intricate rugs on the floor, large gold-plated mirrors hang above ornate fireplaces and antique furnishings scattered among the pillared interiors.The most significant artefacts from the ship-burial, displayed in the British Museum, are those found in the burial chamber, including a suite of metalwork dress fittings in gold and gems, a ceremonial helmet, shield and sword, a lyre, and many pieces of silver plate from Byzantium.
