10th century crucifix found in Denmark

A necklace resembling Jesus on the cross was found by an amateur archaeologist on the island of Funen (Denmark). It dates from the first half of the 10th century BCE. The discovery of Christian artefacts from this period in Denmark is particularly remarkable as it pre-dates the Jelling Stone, the giant carved rune stone from the year 965 that is considered to be the earliest Danish representation of Jesus on the cross. The figure will now be further examined at the museum and will go on display at the Ladby Viking Museum this summer.
