An archaeologist embarks on the historically important excavation of Sutton Hoo in 1938.

THE DIG is adapted from the popular 2008 novel of the same name by John Preston. It’s an account of the most famous archaeological dig in Britain in modern time – the discovery of the Anglo-Saxon burial ship at Sutton Hoo, known as “Britain’s Tutankhamun”. 

Set against the intense backdrop of a nation on the eve of war in 1939, the story channels class tensions, love and loss through the eyes of those affected by the dig and its treasures, including the widowed landowner of the state the burial mounds are on, Edith Pretty, and the amateur archaeologist she hires to excavate their secrets, Basil Brown.

Dir – Simon Stone | starring Carey Mulligan, Lily James, Ralph Fiennes
