The students from the course Ancient Magic and Religion (Classics 10/Religion 19), taught by postdoctoral fellow Suzanne Lye, used several Dartmouth workshops to research and recreate objects related to state religion, personal protection, love magic, curse tablets, etc. The objects will be on display in the Baker/Berry Library Main space until March 13th.

This project was funded through the generosity of an experiential learning grant from DCAL and the support of the Department of Classics.

The workshops used for this project included: Book Arts, Ceramics, Woodworking, and Jewelry. Students also used the Jones Media Center.
