Votive Offerings

A votive offering refers to an artefact that is left in a religious context as an offering to a deity. Such objects may be left in a temple or other built religious site or, as is common in Europe, buried or cast into bodies of water. Such objects of prehistoric European votive offerings are commonly jewellery or weapons and may take the form of miniature weapons. Where an offering of food is made, the votive object may refer to pottery or other vessels in which the offering is held such as the Greek kernos.
