“Some of our ancestors cremated the dead and placed their remains in urns, which they sealed with a lid. Here, in one of the burial mounds at Deising, a conical neck jar with cremated remains was found. This urn, sealed with a lid as was the custom, had a small, deliberately made hole in the bottom.

Why was this hole made? Was the spirit of the deceased supposed to escape through it? Was it to allow the soul to escape and live on?

Many civilisations before us have believed in the transmigration of souls. Here in the Deising necropolis, evidence of this idea may have been found.”
