Fiery Cross Convocation Box. This is a message box from Scandinavia, a way of taking messages to people living in remote areas. The message was put into the box and if there was no one at home to receive it, then it was spiked into the ground for them to see on their return. They are also known as 'fiery crosses' as scorched or burnt message sticks were used when there was urgent news to deliver. The cross on the top of this one shows that it was used for church business.
