A meat pie is a pie with a filling of meat and often other savory ingredients. They are found in cuisines worldwide.
Meat pies are usually baked, fried, or deep fried to brown them and develop the flavour through the Maillard reaction. Many varieties have a flaky crust.

Meat pie originated during the Neolithic period, around 9500 BC. The ancient Egyptians’ diet featured basic pies made from oat, wheat, rye, and barley, filled with honey and baked over hot coals.The Greeks used a flour-water paste resembling pie pastry, and filled it with meat.

This ‘pastry’ cover was not meant to be eaten and was discarded. In Northern Europe, cooks made pastry with lard and butter to make a stiff dough that could hold an upright pie. These medieval pastry dishes were called “coffins/coffyns”, that is, a basket or box, and were:

savory meat pies with the crusts or pastry being tall, straight-sided with sealed-on floors and lids.
