HIKER TAKING A REST FINDS A 1,200-YEAR-OLD VIKING SWORD IN GREAT CONDITION - Goran Olsen was enjoying a leisurely hike recently in Norway when he stopped near the fishing village of Haukeli, about 150 miles west of Oslo. He made a discovery that’s now the envy of every detectorist in Scandinavia: a 30-inch wrought-iron Viking sword, estimated to be about 1,200 years old. The sword was found in very good condition, The mountains are covered in snow and ice six months out of the year, and there’s no humidity in the summer, so the sword would have been protected.
