The Lago di Venere (Lake of Venus) on the Italian island of Pantelleria is a volcanic crater lake that attracted people to its shores for millennia. At the end of the 1800s, the discovery of a small cache of votive figurines near the lake suggested that the area might have been the focus of ancient religious activity. The Brock University Archaeological Project at Pantelleria (BUAPP) has been investigating the lake site for four years. The figurines bring about important questions concerning religious worship in the Mediterranean. Complicated issues of where the votives were produced and who brought them to the island are still being investigated.
