In Sweden, 8-year-old Saga Vanecek discovered a pre-Viking-era sword while she was swimming in a lake one summer's day.
The discovery site, Vidöstern lake, is near Saga's family's holiday home in Sweden's Jönköping County.
Experts say the sword may be 1,500 years old, and was very well preserved.
From BBC NEWS:
The sword was initially reported to be 1,000 years old, but experts at the local museum now believe it may date to around 1,500 years ago.
"It's not every day that you step on a sword in the lake!" Mikael Nordström from the museum said.
The level of the water was extremely low at the time, owing to a drought, which is probably why Saga uncovered the ancient weapon.
"I felt something in the water and lifted it up. Then there was a handle and I went to tell my dad that it looked like a sword," Saga told the Sveriges Radio broadcaster.
Her dad, Andy Vanecek, told English-language website The Local he thought it was a stick or something, but asked a friend to take a look. They figured out soon they'd found had something precious.
After young Saga's discovery, some adults carried out further excavations at the lake and found more ancient relics, including a brooch from the 3rd Century.
What is going on. This appears to be a slurred tweet from Rudy Giuliani piling on to an orchestrated political attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. But honestly, who knows anymore?
“No Collusion No Obstruction.” Got it.
