A brief history of urns

Greek Decorative Urn 850 BC

Urns have been around for centuries dating back as early as 7000 BC. Without knowing the first true origins the oldest on record is from Jiahu in China.

There is evidence of the use of urns all through the bronze age. Cremation in Greece was common and the cremation urns were decoratively painted. The Romans would place their urns in a collective tomb called a columbarium.

In some European countries, the royal tradition was to separate the Kings organs from the rest of the body, place them into separate urns and then place the urns in various places around the country.

These days ashes are stored in urns and kept in homes of the loved one's family. Some even keep the urn so that their ashes can be combined with the loved ones and scattered in a desired location.
