"Never before has a Viking shipwreck been found in Swedish waters," marine archaeologist Roland Peterson from the V?nern Museum told The Local.

A few Viking boats have previously been discovered in Sweden, but earlier finds were made on dry land, Peterson explained.

One of the ships ribs was discovered protruding from the bottom of the lake, while the rest of the boat was filled with a one metre-thick layer of sediment.

A wood sample from the ship, as well as iron samples from a spear and a sword found with the vessel, are to undergo expert analysis over the coming weeks.

Six other wrecks have also been discovered within a 100 metre radius, three of which were found lying almost on top of each other. . . . . .

Nice story. I wish they had added pictures of the sword and spear they found.
