Early Bronze Age collared urn

Jacket’s Well, Knighton, Powys

2000 – 1500 BC

This urn was found in the centre of a circular burial mound. It was placed upside down over the cremated bones of an older adult female and an adolescent aged 11-16.

It has a narrow collar decorated on the outside with two rows of whipped cord ‘maggot’ impressions. These are made by wrapping twisted cord around itself and pressing it into the clay. Rows of fingertip impressions have also been used on the inside of the rim, on the collar and on the shoulder of the urn.
