Viking sword found in grave in central Norway

September 1, 2020 - General

During the Viking Age—probably sometime in the 800s-900s—a man died in the village we call Vinjeøra today, south of Trøndelag county. He was buried with a full set of weapons: axe, spear, shield and sword.

It’s been more than 1000 years since someone held this sword. It belonged to a warrior who lived in Trøndelag
in Viking times. But why was the sword placed on the opposite side of what was common practice?
