The Viking sword is a form of spatha, evolving out of the Migration Period sword in the 8th century, and evolving into the classical knightly sword in the 11th century with the emergence of larger crossguards. Although called Viking swords, this style of sword was not exclusively limited to Vikings and appeared throughout Europe during the Viking age.
