SKIPP Mission Statement:
To facilitate the return of the artefacts discovered within the burial chamber of the Prittlewell Saxon King plus the other previous and future finds to a site in close proximity to the discovery site so as not to break the ‘connection between grave goods and burial chamber’.
In order to achieve this SKIPP proposes the construction of a ‘Saxon Hall Style’ Museum on the Priory Park ‘Brownfield’ site currently occupied by the Council Works Depot. We believe this will be, cost effective, achievable in a relatively short time scale and create an icon internationally significant museum for Southend to be proud of.
We the undersigned believe the only appropriate place for a permanent exhibition of the artefacts discovered within the burial chamber of the Prittlewell Saxon King is on site in close proximity to the burial chamber within or adjacent to Priory Park.
