This decorative urn is a replica of an Anglo-Saxon urn that archaeologists excavated from a site at Sewerby, East Riding of Yorkshire, a site considered one of the most important burial sites of the Anglo-Saxon period. 

The cemetery is a pagan site and one of the earliest cemeteries of the Anglo-Saxon period. It dates to the 6th-7th centuries. As was the practice of pagan burials of this period, a wealth of objects were found buried alongside the dead, providing archaeologists with an abundance of information about early Anglo-Saxon life, society and culture; and allowing us to enjoy the artistry of Anglo-Saxon craftspeople. 

 The site was excavated in the mid-1950s during construction work and again in the 1970s. The treasure trove of objects discovered includes pottery, jewellery and weapons; these objects are now kept in the Sewerby Hall collection. 


Terracotta, reduction fired


Approx. 190 mm tall, 170 mm diameter


As with all my Museum Quality Replicas, we have made this pot, as the original would have been, entirely by hand from natural clay and using replicas of the types of tools that the ancient makers would have used. As each pot varies, you may not receive the vessel in the image, but you can be sure that your pot will be one of a kind due to the variations caused by the firing process.
