1500 year old sword found at the bottom of a lake in Sweden

I can’t help but imagine the events that lead up to that sword sitting at the bottom of the lake.  Great story and I, too, can’t wait to hear more.  Sadly, this sort of study is usually painfully slow.

I'm just wondering when the young lady found the sword, whether or not her arm was clad in the purest shimmering samite.

I always wondered where I lost that thing. Had it the last time I left the tardis… on holiday, looking for an out of the way place/time to do a bit of hunting and gathering.

Time to take a metal detector to the lake. Who knows what else can turn up.
