This on-going project follows on from a desk-based assessment, fieldwalking and evaluation at Hurn Court Farm Quarry, near Bournemouth, Dorset. The latest phase of excavation revealed a ring ditch (levelled Bronze Age burial mound) next to an Early Bronze Age urn (c. 1700 BC). The pot was buried upside down and had been wrapped in an organic material when deposited. Unusually, it did not contain any remains of cremated bone meaning that it was probably a symbolic offering. The urn, which is one of the best preserved of an important group of similar vessels also found in the area, is currently being restored at our Taunton office. Study of the sherds has identified the presence of a potter's mark or signature, possibly making it one of the earliest examples in Britain.
