The Langeid Viking Sword

Excavated in 2011 from a Viking cemetery in Langeid, Bygland, southern Norway, and just now put on display.

A stunning blade. I only wish they had also shown pictures of the axe found with it!

But I would imagine they don't want to show off "damaged" looking objects to the public, and axes never, ever survive well - or at least, not their wooden shafts.
