Last Friday, the digital broadcasting platform Netflix began showing the movie “The Dig”, based on a book written by John Preston, and starring Carrie Mulligan and Countryside Vince.
The film revolves around Sutton’s archaeological discovery in 1939, which the British National Trust described as a revelation that “would revolutionize our understanding of England in early ages.”
The events of the film revolve around the beginning of World War II about Edith Pretty, played by Mulligan, a widow who owns land in the county of Savock, eastern England, who employs amateur archaeologist Basil Brown, and his role is Vince, to excavate the hills of their land, both of whom suspect they are tombs of the Vikings.
Instead, Brown discovers what appears to be the hull of a 27-meter-long Anglo-Saxon ship with a burial chamber full of treasures.
To add a touch of originality to the work, director Simon Stone asked the cast to bury replicas of the treasures found to simulate the excitement associated with the original revelation.
Vince had already found some medieval pottery while excavating outside London.
He said he hoped the small details in the film would inspire the audience.
