Archeologists Make Disturbing, Satanic Discovery Dating Back Centuries

Archeologists recently made a disturbing discovery at the bottom of a latrine in Germany.

What was initially thought to be a piece of scrap metal has since been revealed to be a rolled-up lead tablet dating back centuries to the medieval era, but this was no ordinary lead tablet.

Researchers claim that the tablet bore an inscription for summoning the devil.

The satanic tablet had a curse etched on it directed toward a man and a woman. Speculation abounds as to who these targets of the satanic curse were.

Archaeologists speculated that the tablet may have been targeting a couple to break them up or otherwise cause trouble for them. No matter the aims of the tablet, many were disturbed by the recent discovery:

Daily Star provided an explanation for the curious placement of the tablet:

The markings were barely visible to the naked eye but were noted in the statement to be recognised writing, rather than scribbling.

The discovery in the toilet is understood to be logical as they were often placed in places where they would be extremely difficult to find – and who would go out of their way to fish around for curses in the bog?

One account explained who the targets of the tablet were: “The curse was directed against a woman named Taleke and a certain Hinrik.”

Live Science provided more details on the tablet:

Archaeologists said the finding was unique, especially since similar “curse tablets are actually known from ancient times in the Greek and Roman regions from 800 B.C. to A.D. 600,” Jörg Ansorge, an archaeologist with the University of Greifswald in Germany who led the excavation, said in the statement.
