The Viking era Jelling Cup, said to be used by Gorm the Old, the first historically authenticated King of Denmark and the first Viking ruler to tolerate Christianity. This silver chalice was found at Gorm's capital at Jelling, in Jylland, Denmark.
A beaker made of bronze and silver with embossed gold bands. Found in the cult house deposited with a glass bowl. It dates to about 500 AD and it is probable that it was made in Uppåkra. (Photography by Bengt Almgren, LUHM)
