Roman swords found at Vindolanda

Two metal swords and two wooden toy swords have been found at Vindolanda.

The first sword was found by volunteer Rupert Bainbridge in the corner of a living room of the barrack.

It had a bent tip and a Vindolanda spokesman said it was the “ancient equivalent of a modern soldier abandoning a malfunctioning rifle”.

Mr Bainbridge said he was “excited” by finding “such an extraordinary artefact”.
