Cattle skulls and thirteen cauldrons which showed residue of animal fats were unearthed in England.
This was the largest grouping of such cauldrons found in Europe. One has a handle plate shaped like a cow's head, an otherwise unknown decoration on a British cauldron. (photo)
The traces of animal fats inside the cauldron suggests that the large pots might have been used for serving the "meat-rich stews at Iron-Age feasts over 2,000 years ago," said Julia Farley, British Museum curator.
