Excalibur from Lake Zug

A late medieval artefact discovered by the Archaeological Department of Canton Zug

This season the Museum Burg Zug will delve into the Middle Ages. This was prompted by the discovery of a sword at the bottom of the lake by members of the Archaeological Department of Canton Zug during an underwater dive in Oberwil. After its restoration in the Swiss National Museum the weapon will be on display at the Burg Zug.
