Abstract:

A large number of animal bones, mainly dogs' remains, were identified among features at the settlement in Polwica 4, 5/ Skrzypnik 8. It was established that they were deposited in various ways. The bones were recognized as remains of sacrifices. They has been often discovered in wells, which suggests the existence of a repeated ritual of filling in the wells. An attempt was made to describe these finds structurally
