Archaeologists Dig Up A Relic On Holy Island And Find It’s Way More Significant Than They First Thought

In 2019, a group of volunteer archaeologists made their way to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, one of the British isles. The land is known to have ties with medieval Christianity, and the explorers were eager to learn more about its history.

What they weren’t expecting was to find something no larger than a piece of candy — an artifact that would lead them to learn more about the Holy Island and its people than they ever thought possible.

A group of volunteer archaeologists journeyed to the British Holy Island of Lindisfarne. There, they hoped to learn more about the early Christian roots tied to the isle. They never expected to dig up a relic related to something else altogether.

Made of white and blue glass, what the group of researchers dug up was no larger than a piece of candy. Now, they just had to figure out what the artifact was.
