Valerie I should read this, or some other source on the subject. I've heard of the site, of course: but little more detail.

The cover picture is interesting, but I'd be more interested in discussions of things like whether any less durable goods survived (cloth, for example).

Also, of course, I'd like to see diagrams of the positions things were found in relative to each other. For example, I know that since Tutankhamun was buried in a much smaller tomb than was intended, things were just stacked willy-nilly, so it was hard to get information about what the original plan was. But I believe Sutton Hoo had not been disturbed, so useful information could have arisen from things like what was in jars, baskets, etc.
