what on earth is the meaning of Hydriotaphia? Is it a word origins in latin? What is the meaning of taphia?

Greek for "Urn burial." A hydria is a large greek pot, a water jug usually. Wetman 15:37, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)
And taphos is a tomb. Smerdis of Tlön 15:39, 26 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Urn discovery fictional?[edit]

Were these Norfolk urns actually discovered, or is this fiction?

If you bothered to approach the ACTUAL TEXT you would read 'In a field near old Walsingham recently between forty to fifty old urns were discovered.Norwikian

it's not the answer.

Well what the hell is, i've just quoted you the actual textual answer to your question.

At the very least, be assured that it is nonfiction, but written with a philosophical leaning, much like Ruskin's book on Gothic architecture.

The link at the bottom of the page is to a members only site, I think that's a good enough reason to remove it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aslidsiksoraksi (talkcontribs) 21:42, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
