Opaque glass bead half, that we found last week in Østfold. It measures approximately 11 mm  in diameter.This bead dates to the iron age, and finds a good match in a bead necklace from a grave in Maksjön, Sweden (pictured). The grave is dated to the Vendel period, which is the time period that preceded the viking age (AD 550-790).
