The single-handled bowl served as the urn for the remains of a small child. It was found in one of the group of five graves located next to the contemporary settlement at Podsmreka (14th–13th centuries BC). The graves at Podsmreka typically contained urns similar to the pottery forms found in contemporary habitation contexts (Fig. 211 left).
