The eye of power, bwahahaha

I saw this ancient artificial eye discussed sanely in Archaeology magazine, but then there is the "soothsayer or priestess" angle.

Trust The Daily Mail for that.

Archaeologists said the woman was a female soothsayer or priestess and would have transfixed those around her with her eyeball, making them believe she had occult powers and could see into the future.

Take a clue from the ancient priestess and wow 'em at the next psychic fair.

It never ceases to amaze me how some folks feel the need to romanticize ancient findings like this. It's almost as if they need to validate their own particular brand of weirdness by imposing it onto the past. I've always found the history of ancient peoples and their lives far more interesting than any of the obviously extemporized versions.
