They would cast it into water as a sacred offering to the goddess; a weapon that had been used to kill someone could be bent and cast into the water as a purification rite About three thousand years ago, a hoard of swords, spears and other objects was gathered together and deliberately destroyed. These were deposited in the lake at Duddingston Loch in Edinburgh. There the objects stayed until 1778 when a dredger pulled them up from the depths. https://blog.nms.ac.uk/2018/09/17/sacrifice-or-scrap-the-bronze-age-weapons-from-duddingston-loch/ How coincidental,I'm about to go and make an offering to Condatis at the confluence of two rivers Wonder if stainless steel will last 3k years?
