Archaeologists discover portable altar
Archaeologists have uncovered a one thousand-year-old portable altar at an excavation site in Varnhem in western Sweden.

The stone object was found resting on the skeleton of a heavy set man believed to have been a priest.

Archaeologist Maria Vretemark from Västergötland's Museum describes the miniature altar as "a fabulous find".

It's not what you think it is.
