Archaeologists discover well-preserved 3,000 year old sword in Germany.

A sword from a Bronze Age burial was found by archaeologists in Germany, and unexpectedly, it is still gleaming due to its excellent preservation.

According to a statement issued on June 14 by the Bavarian State Office for Monument Protection, the 3,000-year-old sword was found in the graves of a man, woman, and child in the Bavarian town of Nordlingen. Although it appears that the trio were buried quickly after one another, it is unknown if they were linked.

The sword has been preserved so exceptionally well that it practically still shines. A translation of the statement reveals that it is a representative of the bronze full-hilt swords (octagonal sword type), whose octagonal hilt is entirely made of bronze.

According to a LiveScience report, archaeologists dated the sword to the end of the 14th century B.C. Sword discoveries from this time and region are rare, as many middle Bronze Age graves were looted over the millennia.
