Overview

Collared Urns represent a unified pottery tradition in the prehistory of the British Isles. They serve the archaeologist not only as a source for defining the Bronze Age, but as the basis for understanding regional diversities and as a context for explaining social and cultural development. In this definitive study Dr Longworth bases his new and exhaustive analysis on a complete corpus of known Collared Urns. Each surviving example has been studied; this volume presents a detailed description, notes on the archaeological context and wherever possible, an analytical drawing. The resultant catalogue will serve as a reference book for all concerned with the prehistory of Britain and Ireland, while the discussion of the urns and their prehistoric context sets a firm foundation for the understanding of the Bronze Age.
