Chalice 500 AD

This magnificent bowl is made of silver with gold bands around it. It was found in a ceremonial house in Uppokre - it probably took part in rituals before being buried in the ground. Images of animals and people in motion on the gold bands suggest that the bowl dates from around 500 AD and that it was made in southern Scandinavia - possibly even in Uppokra.
