Androshchuk F. The «Ljudota Sword?» (An episode of Contacts Between Britain and Scandinavia in the Late Viking Age) / Fedir Androshchuk. – Ruthenica: Зб. наук. пр. – Т. 2 – К., 2003. – С. 15–25.
At the end of 19th century, a sword dating from the Late Viking Age was found near Hvoshcheve village in Ukraine. Probably because of its evident uniqueness, the hilt of the sword has never been studied; its typology and decoration has not been extensively analyzed. For this reason, the purpose of this preliminary paper is a contextual analysis of the type and style of the sword. This article is a part of the author’s project, “Viking Age Swords of Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. An Analysis of the Swedish Sword Finds and Related Studies”, sponsored by Statens Historiska Museum and the Archaeological Institute of Stockholm University, funded by the Swedish Institute and the Berit Wallenberg Foundation.
