    What an exciting find!

    I think most of us, at one time or another, and left a tool or object
    behind, and didn't realize it til we were too far away to go back
    and retrieve it.

    A sword was a prize possession of any individual back then, and for a
    Viking, it was their first line of defense. The fellow may have died at
    that spot, body destroyed over the ages and only the good steel of his
    sword remains.

    Good reason to keep the eyes open anytime were in remote areas!
