This extraordinary sword is distinguished by its place among the handful of surviving examples of the period which have been preserved rather than excavated.  It is the Christian counterpart to the iconic Viking swords of the later Viking Period, differing, primarily in the form of the pommel. It is of Oakeshott type XI and accords in detail with example XI.9 dated to 1100 which was found in Suffolk, England. The broad slashing blade is broad fullered and bears a punched maker’s mark, perhaps a scorpion. It was purchased at Christies, London in the early 1980’s, raising the possibility that it may have been used in England. The state of preservation also suggests an English provenance, as the custom of displaying swords in churches is English.
