A Minnesota girl, who also happens to be a vikings fan, came across a over thousand year old viking sword while swimming in a lake in her new home of Sweden.

After stepping on what she thought was a stick, this 8 year old, with the help of her father,  realized by the rusty point and unique handle that it was much more than just a stick.

Saga Vanecek, who was the one who found the sword, almost dropped it back in the water.

“I picked it up and was going to drop it back in the water, but it had a handle, and I saw that it was a little bit pointy at the end and all rusty. I held it up in the air and I said ‘Daddy, I found a sword!’ When he saw that it bent and was rusty, he came running up and took it,”
