This Viking sword was found during the 1950’s in a river bank in the Aube Region of France near the village of Romilly.
During the years 885-889 AD the Vikings invaded this region and attacked the nearby towns of Sens, Troys, Melun, Meaux and Chezy. In Melun, Meaux and Chezy the Vikings set up camps.
A sword of nearly identical form was excavated at the Viking Fort at Camp de Peran in Brittany. The fort was destroyed by fire in the 930’s.
A sword bent in sacrificial ritual, would accompany the deceased warrior to the legendary Halls of Valhalla.
Our sword has no restorations or repairs and is extremely solid and stable with no flaking metal. The chevron pattern of the pattern welding cab still be determined upon close examination. Measured with the bend it has a total length of about 36”. It is in exceptional stable and solid condition for an excavated sword of this period!
