The Prittlewell Prince with Sophie Jackson and Liz Barham

The discovery of the Prittlewell Prince has been lauded as the "UK's answer to Tutankhamun'. The remarkably complete discovery of an Anglo-Saxon prince's burial chamber has given us far more information about the period after the Romans left Britain.

Dan chats to two of the archaeologists and researchers who worked on the tomb, Sophie Jackson, a Director of Research and Engagement at MOLA, and Liz Barham, Senior Conservator at MOLA.
