Hi,
I`m looking for some detail informations about this viking sword from Vaal river - it is in Museum het Valkhof, Nijmegen.
I need the parameters of this one - for reconstruction and research - and I can not find nothing - just one picture here:

EDIT: I made a mistake, I found the sword in the catalog of another museum it might be another sword.

EDIT 2: I think the sword was temporarily in the Valkhof museum, the site seems to mention a viking exposition for kids but that one stopped already. The sword below was found in the Oude IJssel according to the catalog which is part of the Waal river, sadly I haven't the eye to tell if it's the same sword.

I just quickly went to the site and found this info.
