A large garnet was discovered in the center of a “unique” silver cross unearthed by archaeologists at an ancient burial site, BBC News reported.
It’s the latest discovery at Harpole, near Northampton, where a 1,300-year-old grave, believed to be of a high-status woman, was uncovered.
The cross has been found, but it is still encased under soil.
Last month, archaeologists revealed they had unearthed a Medieval gold necklace dated from 630-670 AD, the Anglo-Saxon period. Experts say the exceptional necklace is the “richest of its type ever discovered in Britain.”
It consisted of at least 30 pendants and beads made of Roman coins, gold, garnets, glass and semi-precious stones.
