Bamburg Sword Unlike Any Other in the World

Experts at the Royal Armouries in Leeds have declared a 7th century sword, discovered at Bamburgh Castle in 1960, unique in the world.

The Anglian sword, which is made up of six individual strands of carbonised iron bonded together, has been in storage since its discovery and was recently "rediscovered." According to Archaeologist Paul Gething, the rare sword would have had "serious bling factor."
