Earlier this summer, an 8 year-old girl named Saga Vanecek was doing what she often does: wading in Sweden’s Lake Vidostern.
“I like to walk around finding rocks and sticks in the water, and then I usually walk around with my hands and knees in the water and in the sand,” she explained to Radio Sweden Wednesday.
It was then that she felt something odd beneath her hand and knee. She lifted the object and saw that it had a handle.
She pulled it out of the water and carried it over to her father. “Dad, I found a sword,” she said.
