The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Here there is a film documenting this find. Actually a passionate was hoping to find some cannonballs from 18th C battle.

I don't know if there are some English subtitles. 

From about 14th minute it starts to happen.

What an exciting discovery!  I don't speak Polish, would love to understand the commentary.  Did a museum take possession of the sword?

There is a kind of government's "Office of preservation of monuments" and they were called to make documentations and collect the found object. 

It will be looked after, examined, cleaned up from corrosion etc.

 The man who found the sword clearly pronounced his wish/will is the sword to be back to the museum in his town. As it's not certain as the government's officers often tend to deposit the artifact in some remote museum in big cities. 

 

 And some reenactors diligently look forward till some more details will be revealed.

It was such an exciting and lucky find that one guy has already ordered a blade with Ulberht inscriptions. Then we will wait till the details of cross guard and pommel details are known. So the ancient warrier gave me some nice custom order by loosing his sword :lol::D

Congratulations on receiving a new commission!  Thank you for replying and adding more information about the sword find.  Curious if that was a one-off discovery or if there was a battle nearby and more similar artifacts are waiting to be found!

There are some more news. Unfortunately the article is only in Polish, but if copied to any translator it would be possible to understand to other languages speakers.

It is being cleaned in Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.

It is supposed the works will be complete by July this year.

 

I can't wait till the motifs on cross guard and upper guard and pommel are revealed.
