The coasts of Jerusalem witnessed the discovery of an ancient sword dating back to the Crusades, about 900 years ago, as the diver Shlomi Katzin extracted the sword near the coastal city of Haifa and the city of Jerusalem, according to what was published by the British Sun website.

The diver says: The sword was found about 200 meters at sea, and he noticed that many of the remains, including pottery fragments, stone and metal anchors, as well as the blade were visible, so he decided to raise it to the surface. : “The sword, which has been preserved in excellent condition, is a beautiful and rare find and it is clear that it belonged to a Crusader knight.

The sword was found covered with marine creatures, but it appears to be made of iron. When analyzing the sword, archaeologists say, that the sword has a blade a meter in length and a handle of 30 cm. They added that the discovery area likely provided shelter for ancient ships during the early stages of the Crusades and is home to many Archaeological treasures – some dating back 4000 years.

The First Crusade was the first in a series of religious wars that took place from 1096 to 1099. Christian knights traveled through Europe and eventually captured Jerusalem, where they began massacring the city’s Muslim and Jewish inhabitants. The wars did not end until 1291.
