 Wow an archeologist ! I'm jeleous I love digging up old things I live on a former civil war battle field so it's more like a hobby for me , but my dad dug up a sword Spanish style with blood stains! I never thought of this till just now I could probably use that sword to try to contact whoever may have owned it or possibly who was killed by it it probably has some spiritual significance. But yeah man seriously and archaeologists really cool I bet you find all types of things that you can apply to Magic.
