You probably already know what a Viking sword looks like. They’re of a distinctive shape similar to the Roman spatha, and were developed in the 8th century. These swords were a sign of high status, made to be used with a single hand and combined with a shield.
Even though they’re called Viking swords, they’re actually originally made by the Frankish Empire, and were traded, ransomed, or looted by Vikings. Most of these swords were found from Viking burials. The scabbards and belts that accompanied these swords were made of wood and leather, which unfortunately are rarely preserved.
