‘The underlying theme that unites all amulets and charms is that the people who create and use them believe in them; almost any object may become a charm or an amulet, so long as someone believes it has the power to affect or alter the world around them… The amulets and charms on display at the Pitt Rivers Museum are material evidence of the hopes and beliefs that are shared by all of humankind.’
