Default 1,000-year-old Viking sword found at Cork Beamish site

1,000-year-old Viking sword found at Cork Beamish site


A 1,000-year-old, perfectly preserved Viking weaver’s sword has been discovered by archaeologists at the historic site of the former Beamish and Crawford brewery in Cork city.

The wooden sword is a little over 30cm in length, made entirely from yew, and features carved human faces typical of the Ringerike style of Viking art, dating it roughly to the late 11th century.
