Copper crucifix discovered in Newfoundland

A small copper crucifix portraying the Virgin Mary and Christ Child has been found during an excavation in Newfoundland. The crucifix dates back the 17th century BC and is believed to have belonged to George Calvert, the first first Lord Baltimore in 1620. Evidence is suggesting that the crucifix may have been part of a rosary, as the surface had been worn down over time.
