Part 2

“Well, enough of this,” he said aloud and continued to work the mound with his brush.

A few strokes across the top of the mound uncovered a surface that reflected the evening sun. Daniel’s heart started to race. He had unearthed some interesting artifacts to this point of the dig, but nothing that reflected light. Carefully moving the dirt, he found an edge of the object. Stroking the dirt in an outward motion from an area he thought to be the center of the object, he discovered three more edges. It measured twelve-inches by eighteen-inches. Then, using the handle of his brush, he scraped along the edges to discover it was about one-inch thick.

Griping two of the edges, he gently lifted the object out of the dirt. He placed his right hand underneath the object for support, turned around and carefully placed it on a small two-foot square piece of wood lying on the ground behind him. Brushing away as much of the dirt as his brush would move, he determined it was some sort of marble. He turned the object over and noticed the raised center section was in the shape of a sword. It blade measured two inches wide and was sixteen inches from tip to pommel.
