Deposition (?) of fibulae and rings inside vessels in equipment of Celtic graves in the territory of the Carpathian basin
Languages of publication
Vessels as a part of funerary equipment are seen traditionally as dining and drinking service. It is assumed that they originally contained food and liquids used either du-ring the journey of the deceased to the eternity or during one’s life. In some cases, another function can be considered as well. In this regard, this contribution discusses the evidence of the La Tène burial pottery with unusual content. These are the findings of fibulae and rings with no traces of burnt human remains, the fact which excludes their function of urns. Considering the finding situation of the La Tène graves in the territory of the Carpathian Basin, the author tries to interpret these unusual contents of the burial pottery.
