The Guy of Warwick sword reputedly belonged to the legendary Guy of Warwick who is said to have lived in the 10th century.
Guy of Warwick's most successful feat was the defeat of the Danish giant Colbran to save the English Crown for King Athelstan, who reigned from 925 to 940 when Guy of Warwick used this sword.
The sword itself is said to date back to at least the 13th century and it is a typical cross-hilted weapon from that time. The sword measures over 5ft in length and is designed to be used with two hands.
