Snape is a small village in the English county of Suffolk, on the River Alde close to Aldeburgh. It has about 600 inhabitants. Snape is now best known for Snape Maltings, no longer in commercial use, but converted into a tourist centre together with a concert hall that hosts the major part of the annual Aldeburgh Festival.In Anglo-Saxon England, Snape was the site of an Anglo-Saxon ship burial. J. K. Rowling named the character of Severus Snape in the Harry Potter books after the village.Early historyThere has been human habitation at Snape for some 2,000 years though the original village stood on higher ground, around the present church . The Romans established a settlement here, centred on salt production. In Anglo-Saxon times the Wuffings used Snape largely as a burial site, and archaeological investigations have revealed boat burials and other graves.In 1085 the Domesday Book recorded forty-nine men. The book also mentions a church, standing in eight acres, and valued at sixteen pence . The present church, however, originally thatched, was built in the 13th century, with the 15th-century additions of a porch and tower.
