A cup of tea English people say jokingly: “Seven cups of tea will make you up in the morning; nine cups will put you to sleep at night. If you are hot , tea will cool you off, and if you are cold, it will warm you up. If you are depressed, it will cheer you up; if you are excited, it will calm you down.”

Sutton Hoo Helmet Probably the most famous discovery ever made in Britain was the Sutton Hoo burial site in Suffolk. It all happened on the very eve of the Second World War. A lady called Mrs. Edith Pretty owned a house and some land where 18 mysterious mounds of earth lay. In 1939, she asked archaeologist Basil Brown to excavate them.
Sutton Hoo Helmet Basil excavated the mounds and found they were burial mounds, dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. Sadly, many of them had been robbed, but beneath the largest mound he found the remains of a 9-metre wooden ship. Inside the ship was a burial chamber the size of a small room. Although no body was found, chemical tests on the soil suggest a body had been buried there in Saxon times. There was a sword, a shield and a helmet. There were also many gold and silver things, such as weapons, cups, brooches, jewellery and coins. The dates of the coins found suggest the person was probably Anglo-Saxon king Raedwald who died around AD 617.
