A 900-year-old sword believed to belong to a Crusader Knight has been found off the coast of Haifa, Israel. The sword measured four feet long and its hilt is encrusted with seashells and stones. The sword was found by a scuba diver who reported his find to the Israel Antiquities Authority, which examined the object and believes it to be around 900 years old. The iron sword has been preserved in perfect condition and is a beautiful and rare find. It may have been unearthed during a recent storm that shifted the sand that hid it for centuries.
