Sutton Hoo dig holiday 'snaps' on display in Suffolk

Holiday "snaps" of a dig in Suffolk, UK described as one of the greatest archaeological discoveries in the UK are being displayed for the first time. 

The amateur photographs are among the few records of excavations at Sutton Hoo in 1939, the National Trust said.

Their photographs are now on show at the National Trust's Sutton Hoo.
