A 900 year old sword dating back to The Crusades has been found off the Carmel coast of Israel. Shlomi Katzin made the discovery while scuba diving in the Mediterranean. He was about 150 meters (500 ft) from shore and spotted the sword in the sand about 5 meters (16 ft) down.

Israel’s Antiquities Authority say the area provided shelter for ancient ships and is home to myriad archeological treasures, some dating as far back as 4,000 years, but that finding them can be elusive due to the constantly shifting sands.

The sword was made from iron and features a one-meter (3.3 ft) blade. It has since been encrusted with marine organisms since falling to the bottom of the sea.

When you miscalculate the height
Nobody puts Babe in the corner
Spread your wings and fly my angel
“Take these 10 side streets and then make an aggressive left onto the world’s busiest street”
Spooky season
Had to do a double take
Playoff baseball will make you turn your cane into a voodoo stick
She was not feeling dad’s new haircut
So that’s why they’re called that
The betrayal
Speaking of lemons
When the humans leave for the day
Pizza for one
Wait til you see the pie
This light installation is wild
Slicing cheese
If you’re feeling stressed, just remember..
Rock on
Until next week
