“I am so pleased to see the prospect of the resurrection of the burial ship of someone – Raedwald- who could be regarded as the first Christian king of England or at least the Angles.  The symbolism of this magnificent vessel as representing the culture and skills of that important time in our history cannot be overstated and I know the awe, the wonderment and pride that it will invoke once we see it gradually forming in the Longshed, across the river from where it lay buried for so long” , J McCarthy
