She’s a modern Queen Arthur pulling Excalibur from the Lady in the Lake. Move over, leaders of Sweden. We give Saga extra credit because she had to keep her find a secret for a couple months until archaeologists could see if any other antiquities were buried in the lake’s floor (they found a brooch and a coin). The youth gave the sword to the local museum, JÃ¶nkÃ¶ping County Museum, so others can view it. She liked the sword so much that her father started a fundraiser for the creation of a replica sword.The museum dated Saga’s sword (best name or BEST?) and estimate it’s 1,500 years old. They’ve shared a detailed report about the sword’s composition and possible history. It’s from the pre-Viking era, so it’s kind of remarkable that it’s so well preserved. We think the sword should be displayed with the similarly rusted weapon that Matilda Jones found in a Cornish lake in 2017.What’s the coolest thing you’ve found in a lake? Tell us in the comments.
