Archeologists discovered a Roman cremation cemetery that contained a ceramic urn, pottery shards, and bronze artifacts at a construction site in the UK at Doncaster. Visitors will be able to tour the excavation site to see the artifacts and talk to archeologists.
Another Roman burial site was discovered in the UK at Wasson, site of new home construction. Perhaps a Roman warrior was buried there? In addition to the five cremations and ceramic urn discoveries included six bronze axes.
Cremation was widely practiced by the Romans, with the ashes being placed in ceramic urns and then buried in the ground or placed in underground ossuary or burial chamber.
Some of the most amazing works of art from the Roman period that remain are ceramic urns and funerary vessels.
