Lecture by historian Lauren Hammersen.  Learn about the role of magic and superstition in the everyday lives and homes of ancient peoples, from Caesars to slaves.  The Classical world had a place for everything from personalized curse tablets, to avenging goddesses (designed to kill you or drive you mad), to witches reported to be able to call down the moon.  Come see the rich world of superstition that makes up the foundation of so many of our own modern myths, legends and superstitions.
