Drinking Horns from Sutton Hoo

Two silver gilt drinking horns from Sutton Hoo. As with many other artifacts found at Sutton Hoo, all that remained from these drinking horns were the metal end pieces - the horn originally used to make these drinking vessels would have already decayed. The horn was originally that of the auroch, an animal now extinct. The metal ends are decorated with an intricate detailed design of a swirling, interlocking pattern. The horns were used at banquets as drinking vessels.
