Sammanfattning (abstract):
Burial practices provide signifi cant information for the study of prehistoric societies. When specific elements not only express a clear intention of distinction from what we could call the local customs, but also repeat themselves in several distant areas, an imagined community model seems to off er fruitful tools for the interpretations of such phenomena. Th is paper aims to discuss such model and to apply it to the study of the North European Late Bronze Age house urns. Th e latter show a twofold attitude, being at the same time compliant to the local rituals, but atypical in their formal characteristics (e.g. shape) and meanings. Used for a limited number of burials at every site, they seem to point to the existence of an imagined community stretching over several cultural borders.
