Lusatians, the ancient inhabitants of the Nothern European regions of Poland and Prussia from the late Bronze Age to the early Iron Age, are identified in the archaeological record by large cemeteries containing numerous cremation burials contained in cinerary urns. The burials were often accompanied by numerous secondary pottery vessels as well as bronze tools, ornaments, and weapons.
