17th century cross found at Ste. Marie


This iron artifact was found I believe back in the 1940s or 50s at Ste. Marie Among the Hurons, the fortified French mission c. 1640-50, now reconstructed. This cross is in the collection of the Museum/Archive of Martyrs’ Shrine, the shrine to the Canadian Jesuit Martyrs located west of Port McNicoll, Ontario, Canada

my photo taken today, I was fortunate to hold this cross in my hands today
