Cross of Conbelin, ca. 950 to 1050 AD: One of the Welsh Margam Stones. It has an immense stone wheel-cross with knot-work arcs, plaitwork cross, and a central boss. The shaft includes carved figures flanking the cross, taken to be St John holding his gospel, and the Virgin Mary set into a massive stone pedestal with geometrical patterns and a hunting scene. It has been known traditionally as 'The Sanctuary Stone.'
