Loveden Hill Cremation Urn (Exc.1963) 3D Model
This is one of a number of models designed to facilitate research on a 6th-century Anglo-Saxon cremation urn excavated at Loveden Hill, Lincolnshire (British Museum object number 1963,1001.14; height 155mm, diameter 180mm). The urn carries a runic inscription (Siþæbæd - a personal name), this is one of the earliest examples of written Old English, and the 3D model enables more accurate analysis of the inscription in its object context. Part of a collaborative project between The Landscape Research Centre, the British Museum, and The Impact of Diasporas on the Making of Britain research programme (University of Leicester, University of Nottingham, and the Leverhulme Trust). http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/collection_object_details.aspx?objectId=63247&partId=1&place=29365&plaA=29365-3-1&page=1
