Middle Bronze Age Bucket Urn – circa 1500BC to 1000BC, Three Gates Lane, Haslemere, Surrey, UK
Bucket Urns vary between 25cm to over 60cm in height. These Urns were crudely made by hand with thick walls, simple exterior decorations and they commonly contain a finger–impressed cordon around their circumference. The fabric of the clay has been tempered with flint chips for strength and is very coarse in nature. Due to its poor construction these urns they are rarely found complete. Bucket Urns were mainly constructed to contain the cremated remains of humans. The ashes and remnant burnt bones were deposited into the Urn and the Urn was then placed in the grave.
