Tit blev dyret parteret og kun udvalgte dele tøjret til en pæl. Måske spiste man resten i forbindelse med offerceremonien? Omkring vor tidsregning blev de første våben ofret i Vimose: et enægget sværd og 12 små lansespidser. Knap 100 år senere ofredes der igen hærudstyr: mindst 50 lanser, spyd, sværd, skjolde, bælter…
