Amulet linked to early Christianity

From Amulet linked to early Christianity.

King Harold Bluetooth brought Christianity to Denmark roughly 1100 years ago. At least that’s what he declared on the Jelling Stone located in Jutland:

‘King Haraldr ordered this monument made in memory of Gormr, his father, and in memory of ThyrvĂ©, his mother; that Haraldr who won for himself all of Denmark and Norway and made the Danes Christian.’

A tiny crystal amulet in the National Museum’s archives suggests something quite different though, that maybe Christianity arrived in Denmark six centuries earlier than previously believed.
