The period of conversion under Frankish rule. Bronze, just under 1” height. Delicate form with ball tipped beams, the cross beam slightly above center. The junction with a raised edge square enclosing a saltire. The suspension loop intact. Charlemagne declared that all of his subjects convert to Christianity under penalty of death. This small cross protected its owner from that fate.
