Stone urns

These stone urns were made from a soft steatitic stone and were often hollowed out of a single block with a metal chisel. These two urns were found on Aucorn farm, Wick, Caithness. The smaller urn fits into the larger one and there was originally a stone lid. Both urns were decorated around the rim with a double line.
