Eight Year Old Girl Pulls 1500 Year Old Sword Out of Lake King Arthur Style
#1
How cool is this!! I'd love to know the whole story and history behind this relic.



An 8-year-old girl made a fantastic discovery playing in a Swedish lake: a pre-Viking era sword.

Saga Vanecek, a Swedish-American girl, pulled the 33-inch sword from the bottom of the lake, held it up in the air and declared "Daddy, I found a sword!" she told Swedish news website The Local. A drought had lowered the lake's water level near her family's vacation home in southern Sweden, the BBC reports.

That sword, made out of wood, leather and metal, could have been made 1,500 years ago, experts at the Jonkopings Lans Museum said in a press release.
