Sunday Funnies – Swedish Girl Finds Really Old Sword in Lake

From the SmithsonianVideo on CNN

Back in July, eight-year-old Saga Vanecek was playing in a lake near her family’s summer home in Sweden. She reached into the water and pulled out what she thought was a stick—but quickly realized that it was something far more special.

“Daddy, I found a sword!” she cried, according to Catherine Edwards of the Local Sweden.

Saga’s family subsequently alerted the Jönköpings Läns Museum to the discovery, and experts there have since revealed that the sword may be as much as 1,500 years old, dating back to the Iron Age.
