The Loveden Hill Runic Urn

Detail of the model of the Loveden Hill cremation urn.

We have made a dynamic 3D model of the 6th C cremation urn from Loveden Hill, Lincs. which carries one of the earliest examples of Old English, in runic script. The model allows viewers to rotate the vessel, and to read the inscription in context. It is free to view, and can be downloaded onto mobiles, tablets or laptops.

The urn is now in the British Museum, and this model has been made with the support of the Trustees of the British Museum, and the help of the Department of Britain, Europe and Prehistory.
