Centuries-old crusader sword found by amateur diver in Mediterranean Sea

A sword believed to have belonged to a Crusader knight who sailed to the Holy Land almost a millennium ago was recovered by a sharp-eyed amateur diver from the Mediterranean seabed, the Israel Antiquities Authority said on Monday.

Though encrusted with marine organisms, the metre-long blade, hilt and handle were distinctive enough to notice after undercurrents apparently shifted sands that had concealed it.

The blade was discovered by scuba diver Shlomi Katzin on the seabed along the Carmel coast, a natural cove near the port city of Haifa, said the IAA.

The sword, believed to be about 900 years old, will be put on display after it has been cleaned and restored.
