For 137 years, England and Australia’s cricket teams have competed for ownership of ‘The Ashes’. The series of matches is so named following England’s unexpected defeat to Australia in the summer of 1882. A mock obituary in the Sporting Times stated that the body of English cricket would be cremated, and its ashes taken to Australia. During the next test series, played in Australia in the winter of 1882-1883, a small ‘urn’ was presented to the English captain, Ivo Bligh, as a personal memento.
Over the years, this urn has become imbued with the romance of one of the oldest sporting rivalries in the world.
Known as ‘the Home of Cricket’, and owned by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), Lord’s Cricket Ground contains the world’s oldest sporting museum and library, where much of cricket’s history is preserved and documented. The Ashes Urn forms a centrepiece of the museum and is arguably its most iconic object. https://www.lords.org/lords/our-history/the-ashes
