Netheravon Cremation Urn

2775

Tom Theed of Landmarc, re-united with the unusually large Early Bronze Age cremation urn that he and his team found on a burial mound at Netheravon, 'excavated' in pieces by badgers! Controlled excavation of the find spot was subsequently undertaken by Wessex Archaeology in conjunction with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and Operation Nightingale, and the urn put back together by Gabby Flexer at the Wiltshire County Conservation lab in Chippenham.
 
This amazing find and an equally remarkable group of bronze, stone and bone objects from the same burial can currently been seen on temporary display at the Wiltshire Museum, Devizes.
