Hi guys,

I was hoping someone would be able to tell me more about this viking sword? Where was it found, when does it date back to, which museum is it currently presiding in?

I don't recognize this specific sword... lovely scrollwork though. It looks like a Petersen type S to me, which are generally dated to the 10th century I believe...
