Thousands of bones were discovered by the archaeologists working at the Hallaton shrine.
Most of the remains were pig bones, possibly the remnants of great feasts, held during the AD 30s. Other bones come from domesticated animals such as sheep and cattle. Only one human bone was found at the site.
The remains of three dogs were also found. The dogs were probably buried to act as spiritual guardians of the shrine and its treasures. You can see the remains of one of the dogs at Harborough Museum.
