History of Urns

Cremation urns have a long history, archaeologists have found Stone Age cremation urns in caves in Europe and the Near East during the end of the ancient period.

The traditional urns became a part of most of the civilizations across Europe, and was influential in the Roman Empire, Greeks and Mycenaean age. Columbarium tombs are among the most recognizable pattern of Roman construction and also among the most ambiguous.

With the spread of Christianity, cremations of the deceased were replaced by burials and were considered against religious beliefs and customs.

However, due to the remains of the diseased and of those who perished in war, cremation became more acceptable and therefore, practiced more often. In modern times, cremation has come back with the support of several societies.
