River Witham Sword, museum replica
The original of this sword was found in the river Witham, near Lincoln. It is now exhibited in the British Museum.
The exact dating of the sword is uncertain. The blade of the original could have been made in Germany, which was the centre of blade manufacture in Europe at this time. The original blade is inlaid with gold wire to form an inscription, our version has substituted the gold wire by hand-engraving into the steel. The inscription of probable Viking origin (+NDXOXCHMDRCHDXORVI+) has not been deciphered so far.
