A new discovery was made recently in the Vidöstern lake from the Jonkoping County in Sweden by an eight-year-old girl. While she was swimming in the lake near her family’s summer home she was throwing around sticks and stones as any child would, when she noticed a very strange looking stick.
After picking it up she noticed it had a handle so she called out to her father saying that she discovered a sword of some sort.
Her father, Andy Vanecek, immediately ran over to their neighbors and showed them the artifact.
After they concluded that it was real they went over to the local Jonkoping County Museum where Mikael Nordstrom told them that the sword is around 1,500 years old by now and that it’s extremely well preserved for its antiquity.
Despite the fact that it was discovered on July 15th, Saga, the little girl that made the discovery, was only allowed to tell her friends about her discovery on October 4th because the officials didn’t want people flooding the lake looking for more artifacts.
Soon afterward a broach was also discovered in the lake which dates around 300-400 AD. They are from the same periods, experts believe.
Nobody really knows why they were both discarded of in that lake, but what we do know is that this made people instantly dub Saga the “Queen of Sweden” alluding to King Arthur’s Excalibur story
