3rd Online Display – Lissa Underhill

My current A&S focus is on recreating and learning about early Anglo Saxon Cremation Urns and about early Anglo-Saxon pottery in general. The item I have chosen for the focus of my first recreation project is the Loveden Hill Anglo Saxon Cremation Urn. This urn is highly significant because it is the only cremation urn found to have runes written on it.

This display features:

1) An audio introduction (with an accompanying text file)

2) Several photos of draft #2 of my urn. The exact recreation is still in process.

3) A PowerPoint presentation discussing more about the urn and Anglo Saxon pottery in general

4) An annotated bibliography so you can learn about some of my favorite sources

Please feel free to comment with thoughts and suggestions! My e-mail is 137268@members.eastkingdom.org if anyone wants to contact me directly. I am always interested in learning more, both about how to better present my work and more about ways to improve my projects and further my research. Thank you!

  1. Yay new rabbit hole!
    Lovely work, I’m glad you’re enjoying learning about it.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Thank you for sharing your art. I love learning about historic items that are totally new to me.

  3. Thank you so much! I’ve been a casual fan of anglo-saxon pottery for a small while now and I learned a lot from reading your presentation.

  4. This was really cool, I’ve been on another Time Team kick and I have seen the episodes where they unearth these kinds of pots! Thank you for sharing this and your journey in making these pots.

  5. This was such a well constructed piece! I really liked how you were able to describe the chemical properties of the clay so that anyone unfamiliar could follow.
    Your forms are always improving, and this one really shows all the techniques you picked up along the way. Truly beautiful work.
