Grammar of Ornament from Bronze Age Urns by J. Romilly Allen

Of the hundreds of urns of the Bronze Age found in Britain, no two are the same in decoration. The fertility of the imagination exhibited in the production of so many beautiful patterns by combining diagonal straight lines in every conceivable way is really amazing. On examination it will be found that, complicated as the patterns appear to be, the chevron is the basis of them all.

- John Romilly Allen
