Archaeology hobbyists were stunned when they unearthed a remarkable historical find from a field in Janakkala, southern Finland. The ancient grave site appeared to be that of an early crusader buried with two swords from different eras.

A lot of information will be gleaned from this unusual burial site
using advanced technologies. We can expect the findings published
in the near future.

Interesting. I've been at an exhibition about the Etruscan; Etruscan art was the form of figurative art produced by the Etruscan civilization in central Italy between the 9th and 2nd centuries BC.It has been very well preserved.

“Now it’s possible to try these new forms of analysis. We have put out enquiries to try and find out where the man was from, where he came from, and whether he lived here, using DNA and isotope dating. And of course we can use regular radiocarbon dating to determine when he died."

I can't wait until they do these tests and find out more about him - how fascinating!

A twelfth century weapons nut? Or at least a collector? Be tough to use two swords, a spear and an axe all at the same time.

Swordsman is raised from the earth. Rises indicates he did it himself and using 'Earth' not earth indicates that he rose from the planet not the ground.
