Medieval sword pulled from sewer in Denmark

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A sharp sword lodged deep within a sewer caught the eye of a pipe layer and an engineer working in Aalborg, Denmark, on Tuesday (Feb. 5). After showing it to archaeologists, the two could hardly believe their luck.

The double-edged sword — a deadly, 3.6-foot-long (112 centimeters) weapon — likely belonged to an elite warrior in medieval times, during the 1300s, according to archaeologists from the Historical Museum of Northern Jutland.

And that warrior likely paid a pretty penny for the weapon.

If I found that in the sewer, I would be more concerned for the person that passed it while sitting on the loo... This is one hell of a night out.

It wasn't pulled from a sewer, but while digging down towards one. The only reason "sewer" is mentioned is because the finders were sewer workers.

One funny detail is that one of the finders,Jannick Vestergaard, shares name with a somewhat famous danish footballer, and it's not a common name at all!
Only difference is a C. That I find as odd as the find itself.
