People and their rituals in The Dig (2021)

I watched The Dig (Simon Stone, 2021), with Ralph Fiennes as Basil Brown and Carey Mulligan as Edith Pretty. The movie is based on John Preston’s eponymous novel which tells the story of the 1939 discovery of the Sutton Hoo burial ship, changing what was known of early Medieval Britain and the Anglo Saxons who lived in it.
