News Synopsis

According to the Israel Antiquities Authority, a scuba diver unearthed a 900-year-old sword together with other artifacts going back to the Crusader period off the shore of Carmel beach in northern Israel. The Israel Antiquities Authority has been keeping an eye on the spot where the sword was discovered in June.

According to the IAA, the site has archaeologically valuable objects and was used as a natural anchoring spot as early as 4,000 years ago, with the sword indicating that it was still in use 900 years ago. The sword features a one-meter blade and a 30-centimeter hilt.

Shlomi Katzin, an Atlit resident, gave the ancient sword to the Israel Antiques Authority in exchange for a certificate of good citizenship. Katzin found the sword during a recent dive in a location off the coast where waves and undercurrents had allegedly shifted sand, revealing the relic, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. While hunting for stones and metal anchors, Katzin came across the sword, which was coated with sand, tiny stones, and shells.
