The Anglo-Saxon capital of the kingdom of the East Anglia has, over the last 800 years, almost entirely disappeared into the sea. Forming the current edge of this unmade town, Dunwich beach houses upturned hulls and ramshackle fishing huts containing industrial machinery for winching fishing boats. These permanent artefacts suggest a local, small scale fishing industry, an industry for the making of food. In contrast, an individual shore angler carries their portable tools of a personal industry, finding a place on the pebbled beach, looking out to the sea in which the lost town lies buried.
