Vote for Beornwine!

The Suffolk Museum's 'Object of the Year' poll is now open.

This year’s theme is 'family friendly'.

We were overwhelmed by all the votes we received to name the young Anglo-Saxon man buried in the settlement. With this in mind we have selected the skull that made Beornwine’s facial reconstruction possible.

Beornwine is our only opportunity to look into the face of someone who lived at West Stow.

You can vote for Beornwine now by visiting the Suffolk Museums website 

Thank you!
