Scientists Recognized Legendary Sword of Ivan the Terrible

The sword found archeologists in Siberia in 1975 has been identified.

      According to the research conducted the sword most likely belonged to the well-known Cossack ataman Yermak and was presented to him by Tsar Ivan the Terrible, The Russian Times reports.

      The weapon was found not far from the place, where the legendary conqueror of Siberia had been killed in a battle with the Tatar troops. For several decades the sword was kept in store rooms of a local lore museum.

      However, the recent additional research made it possible for scientists to assume that it was with this weapon that Yermak died. The sword has some inscription in Latin on both sides of it. According to scientists, the weapon is still in an excellent condition and restorers can make it pristine.
