The Ghost Ship of Sutton Hoo Sails Again
The exhibition delves into the fascinating history behind the fossil imprint of a burial ship, discovered in Mound One in 1939 by archaeologist Basil Brown, and is built around a scale replica model of the ship itself. The eye-catching graphic panels, designed by Ugly Studios, entice and inform visitors without overwhelming the rest of the display. The panels, intended to evoke the ship’s maritime context, suggest the graduation of shallow to deep water, whilst simultaneously augmenting the spiritual subthemes of the exhibition.
On Thursday 12th March, Ugly Studios were amongst the sea (pun intended) of local dignitaries that previewed the exhibition. It’s always rewarding to see our work appreciated, and thanks go to NT Sutton Hoo for their invitation and for our continued partnership together!
‘Ghost Ship of Sutton Hoo’ opened to the public on Saturday 14th March, and will run until Autumn 2015.
