Pompeii archaeologists uncover 'sorcerer's treasure trove'

Archaeologists working in the buried Roman city of Pompeii say they have uncovered a "sorcerer's treasure trove" of artefacts, including good-luck charms, mirrors and glass beads.

Most of the items would have belonged to women, said Massimo Osanna, director of the Archaeological Park of Pompeii.

A room with the bodies of 10 victims, including women and children, was excavated in the same house.

Good luck charms! Well I think we can consider that question settled! :rollingw:

Though it could be these were just too cheap to work. I have some much dearer ones, if anyone is interested . . . :evillaugh:
