Sammanfattning

This paper aims first to propose an updated overview of the Late Bronze Age Northern European house urn phenomenon. It is argued that they performed, among other things, a claim for distinction and differentiated those who were buried or who buried their deceased in them from the other members of the various local communities. The very core of such a claim supposedly relies on the links between the practice and long distance exchange networks throughout Europe. Secondly a particular focus is set on the house urn from the so called Wickbold 1 mound and its archaeological evidence. Although on the whole no particular categories of individuals appear to have exclusively accessed house urns, in the very case of the Wickbold 1 grave and of a handful of close contexts from north-western Brandenburg and south-western Mecklenburg-Vorpommern it seems that house urns were indeed associated to adult, possibly male, individuals with relevant social status. The characteristics of these contexts also suggest that house urns acted as manifold indices signalling, among other things, the access of these individuals to long distance exchange networks and in particular with the Nordic Bronze Age world.
