In Search of Britains Vehicular History

As is customary here on Strangeharvest, it’s time to share some pictures of this years summer holiday. Maybe its a primary school hangover … Anyway. Above is a photo of Sutton Hoo. It’s the site of Britains most important archiological find: an Anglo Saxon burial ground with two ship burials. Amazing stuff. But another nugget of history was casually revealed by the National Trust guide on the burial ground tour I was lucky enough to be part of.

Sutton Hoo is also the site of an unremarkable house, whose outbuildings happen to include the first car port in the UK. History indeed. I wonder if the vehicle enhanced 6th century burials worked any ghostly influence on the later above-ground vehicle architecture ?
