    Girl pulls ancient Viking sword from lake
    An eight-year-old girl has discovered a pre-Viking-era sword in a Swedish lake, prompting locals to name her the "Queen of Sweden." Swedish-American Saga Vanecek found the ancient artifact while playing in Vidöstern lake during the summer near her family's holiday home in the south of the country. Experts at a local museum estimate the sword to be around 1,500 years old.
    "I was outside in the water, throwing sticks and stones and stuff to see how far they skip, and then I found some kind of stick," Vanecek told local news.
    "I picked it up and was going to drop it back in the water, but it had a handle, and I saw that it was a little bit pointy at the end and all rusty. I held it up in the air and I said 'Daddy, I found a sword!' When he saw that it bent and was rusty, he came running up and took it," she continued.
    The report added that locals joked that the discovery made his daughter the new "Queen of Sweden," drawing parallels with legend of King Arthur who was bequeathed a right to rule after being handed the Excalibur sword by the Lady of the Lake. Mikael Nordström, an expert from the Jonkopings Lans Museum, described the discovery of the relic as spectacular, saying that it was "about 85 centimeters long, and there is also preserved wood and metal around it." Her father, Andy Vanecek, said in a Facebook post that the Iron Age sword was found complete with its scabbard, made of wood and leather, and that it is "the first sword of its kind to ever be found in Scandinavia." Nordström said archaeologists had since searched the lake again, finding a prehistoric brooch from around the same period as the sword.
