Ancient Viking Sword, 900-1000 Years Old For Sale

Ancient Viking Sword, 900-1000 Years Old

This is an impressive sword of the Viking age. The country of origin is unknown, but those that have examined the piece speculate it is possibly of the Vikings from the Baltic, Latvia, Estonia or Russia. The hilt is twisted bronze and the blate iron. There is a beautiful patina on the hilt, and obviously much oxidation on the iron blade.

The entire length from hilt to blade is (19") andthe hilt length is (5.5"). It is extremely rare to find a sword from this time peroid completely intact. The display case is (not) included with this sale.

This is obviously a museaum quality piece, and will be a wonderful addition to any private or museum collection.

This is a extremely rare and primitive viking sword, long before the traditional pommel hilt was created, bronze hilts were fashioned and twisted. The hilt was then wrapped in layers of thread, leather and wire. The Vikings were noteworthy for their forging skills, as they could invade a foreign land and separate iron ore and forge swords wherever they landed.

This sword was found in the Rhine River intact however, the wrapping on the hilt did not survive. This piece will most likely never appear again in a sale venue.

From the secure Viking settlements, the Rus stretched out deeper into Eastern Europe to trade. The Rus Viking's were full of ambition and the expansion eastwards would guarantee many of the Rus Viking's their fortunes. The Rus Viking's arrived in Constantinople in 838 A.D, They claimed friendship with the Emperor and told him of their Swedish heritage. It is believed that the Greek speaking Byzantines gave the Swedish Viking's their name Rus. It is derived from the Greek word "Rusiori " which was ancient Greek for Blond. It is entirely likely that all the Rus Viking's would be of Nordic descent

Please Note: This sword was recovered from the Thames River, not the Rhine. My sincere apologies for this geographic error.
