8 Year old Swedish American Girl

finds 1,500 year old Viking Sword!

Swedish-American girl Saga Vanecek has made headlines in Sweden and abroad after she pulled a 1,500-year-old sword from the waters of Vidöstern Lake during a summer vacation, which her family spent at their summer home there.

Due to a drought, the water level of the lake was unusually low.

However, the father didn’t suspect at first what kept her in the water. <hr>

I read this yesterday. Absolutely amazing and you have to wonder, had it just sat there for however many years or did a storm bring it up or any other number of scenarios.

Certainly is an amazing story. To think all of those years just laying in the mud until one little girl from American (half Swedish) decides to find it.

Wondering if they will keep it or are they required to turn over to the government of Sweden?
