Eight Year Old Girl Finds 1,500 Year Old Sword






(AP) — Her name conjures up Old Nordic tales about heroic accomplishments and that’s exactly what Saga this summer did when she stumbled on a pre-Viking-era sword in a southern Sweden lake.


Saga Vanecek, 8, was helping her father with his boat in the Vidostern lake when she stepped on a 34-inch sword in a holster made of wood and leather. The sword is believed to be about 1,500 years old.


Mikael Nordstrom of the local Jonkoping County museum said Friday that the little girl’s find prompted others to seek out long-lost treasures in a lake that had been diminished by drought.


A broach from between 300 to 400 A.D. was eventually found.


Nordstrom said archaeologists are trying to understand why the items were there. For sacrificial purposes is one suggestion.

It'll probably by confiscated and melted down by the Swedish government, if it hasn't already happened.

Or it's going to be conserved and put in the museum mentioned in the article...


"Saga’s sword will be conserved and put in the museum"

I don't know why you think it would be melted down.  I understand you are uber-conservative now, but I legitimately don't know how you got to that conclusion.  It would be helpful if you explained your reasoning.

/\ I think she's throwing shards at the Swedish government "supposedly" being racist and genocidal towards Swedes by her narrative.
