EFEMount Carmel, Israel

An ancient sword thought to have been used by a crusader knight centuries ago has been discovered by an amateur diver off the Carmel coast in northern Israel.

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said on a Facebook post on Monday that the diver, identified as Shlomi Katzin, stumbled upon the 900-year-old sword while diving on the weekend. EFE
