Set consisting of a cineration urn and grave goods from an early iron-age burial.

A set of ceramic funerary items from one of the tombs of an incineration necropolis from the early Iron Age. This necropolis comprised over 1,000 tombs and is one of the most important burial sites in the Western Mediterranean from 3,300 - 2,500 years ago. It is known as Can Piteu - Can Roqueta and is located in the municipal district of Sabadell. 

This set consists of a central cinerary urn with a lid and a further twelve offering vessels. An iron knife and a bronze brooch were found along with these ceramic items.
