NTNU Museum of Natural History and Archaeology archaeologist Anne Haug told NRK, “It’s extremely exciting, the sword has some remnants of wood and fabric, and it is very rare.”
It is believed that the swords are in such good condition because they lay in clay underneath 1.5 metres of arable land. Several burial sites are known to be in the area, which were razed to the ground in the 1800s.
