Question on arms from the first/second Crusades
I thought of this question as I haven't really looked into it- it is a difficult one I know,

As some swords of type X, Xa, XI, XIA, and even some XII's were certainly carried on the long campaign. Some were used to defend Christian victories at Jerusalem and elsewhere.

Have some swords of the era been recovered in the middle east, or on the route besides sea travel of course. I don't remember reading much about this. Britain and Scandanavia seems to do very well with representatives from this era but I have not heard of others. Also I know that must cope with the complications that many swords find place can't be determined or those in private collections.

Just a stab in the dark,
Well i know of at least one that could be from the period being found in recent years.
Of course there are also the Alexandria storehouse swords....but those are later than you're asking about.
Sorry I couldn't be more help,
