While taking a break from his hike in Norway, Gøran Olsen noticed something strange hidden amongst the rocks: a sword! This wasn’t just any sword, however, as archaeologists determined that it was around 1,200 years-old! And while the sword was quite common in Norway, it’s quite lucky to find one this old and in this great of condition; researchers have said that with a new grip, the sword could be used today! Archaeologists are waiting for warmer weather to conduct further investigation of the area where the sword was found. The sword itself will be sent to The University Museum of Bergen.
