Lake Vi­dostern, Swe­den

The Week (US) - - 8 News -

Girl finds sword: An 8-year-old Swedish-Amer­i­can girl has been nick­named “Queen of Swe­den” af­ter she pulled an an­cient sword from a lake. Saga Vanecek, who was born in Min­nesota to Swedish par­ents and moved with her fam­ily to Swe­den last year, was wad­ing in Lake Vi­dostern when she came across the Iron Age blade. Her father, Andy, said that she lifted the 33-inch-long weapon high above her head and shouted, “Daddy! I found a sword!” Ex­perts say the artifact could be up to 1,500 years old, dat­ing to a time be­fore the Vikings. De­spite her discovery, Saga says she has no in­ten­tion of be­com­ing an ar­chae­ol­o­gist when she grows up and would rather be “a doc­tor, vet, or an ac­tress in Paris.”
