Beautifully Preserved 3,000-Year-Old Sword Discovered in Germany

In Germany, archaeologists have discovered a remarkably well-preserved Bronze Age sword, making it even rarer.

This is a discovery they certainly did not expect! In the midst of archaeological excavations at a site in the town of Nördlinger, Bavaria, scientists have unearthed an artifact of rare historical value.

In the tomb of a family where there was a man, a woman and a child, the archaeologists also discovered an extremely well preserved sword which dates back more than 3000 years. Apart from a few scratches, the sword still shines in the sunlight.

According to Heritage Daily, discovering such an artifact in such a perfect state of preservation makes the find even rarer. However, difficult to certify that the sword belonged to the family buried with it.

Thus, scientists are still trying to determine if the sword was forged locally or if it was imported. Other octagonal-hilted swords from the Bronze Age have already been discovered in southern and northern Germany , as well as in Denmark.
