Abstract

One of the oldest objects in the archaeological collection
from Ghent University is an urn from the region of Tongerlo. The urn
belongs to the Late Bronze Age as has been proven by the
typochronological study as well as the radiocarbon date on
a cremated bone. The osteological study has shown that the
remains of two persons a young juvenile and an adult were
deposited in the urn. This phenomenon is not unknown in
other regional urnfield cemeteries, although until now mostly
neonates together with women have been identified.
