This urn, decorated with incised lines and stamp impressions, in which 1 500 years ago a Saxon man or woman was buried, comes from the urban district of Hinschenfelde. As early as 1889, this vessel came into the possession of the Museum of Ethnology, which was also then responsible for archaeological finds from Hamburg.
