Type: X (short) Find-place: Unknown Blade-Length: 23' (58.5 cms) Pommel-type: H, Cross-style: 5 Date: c.1250 Condition: Excavated (probably a river-find). Comparison with other sowrds (ie. No. XI.1 here) which have to be dated to the 12th century points clearly to a date c.1125-75 for the blade - a good example of an old blade re-hilted c.1270 plus or minus a decade or so. переделан из старого клинка
