Viking Swords - Buried Historical Treasures
Very few weapons of Viking origin have survived till our days. This is not because of low quality of the weapons as some tend to believe. The reality is that Vikings used to bury their weapons (swords, helmets and armor) in the ground when the warriors died. Thus, many of the artifacts survived either in bad conditions or didn't survive at all. Some experts affirm that there are only about 1000 artifacts of Viking origin which survived; all of them are spread in major museums around the world. Most of the discovered Viking swords were simply designed. They were equipped with a typical double edged blades and strong handles. They were designed to be wielded single-handed to keep one hand free for a shield. Typically, blades ranged from 24 to 36 inches long, but often reached from 27.50 to 31.50 inches.
