Someone unearthed a urine-filled "witch bottle," circa 17th C. The bottle also contains nail clippings, pins, and hair. Oh and yes, the urine is human, apparently. It was all sealed up inside of this bottle and buried upside down.

I'm completely intrigued. I love reading about the different ways in which people try to make sense of, and to control, their lives, environments, and interactions with others.
