Blythburgh Priory was a medieval monastic house located in the Suffolk village of Blythburgh in England. It may be the site of the burials of Anglo-Saxon King Anna and his son Jurmin.[1][2]

In 2008 Channel 4's Time Team archaeological programme investigated the site. Finds included burials dating from the mid-7th century, the time of King Anna.[3] The programme of the dig was first broadcast 29 March 2009.
