I have an old Christian cross that is around 3 inches in length. A British Royal Consultant on Portable Antiquties believes it is possibly of the late Viking Period (late 10th to early 12th centuries). I’ve been trying for a number of years to find out about it. One of the parts has a P & X on the back. How might I get someone with knowledge to look at the photos?
