    A while ago I read an article in ” Antique Weekly “about the RIVER WITHAM SWORD . It is a sword that is believed to be circa Thirteenth Century. It may be of English or German origin. The sword has the following markings on the blade ; ( Chi – Rho Symbol ) N D X O X C H W D R G H D X O R V I ( Chi – Rho Symbol ) . I do not know if this sword is related to Masonry or not. However, I thought that it is very interesting and others might have ideas about the origin of the sword and the meaning of the markings on its blade.

  2. Rick A. Roberts: though the Rover Witham knightly sword is an interesting artefact, historians have already identified a number of other broadly similarly inscribed swords e.g. from Alphen aan den Rijn) from broadly the same time period. I’ll almost certainly post about this at a later date when the dust has settled a little further. 🙂

    New book out, Knights’ Gold, explains how 5,000 gold coins discovered in 1934 Baltimore were actually the property of the Knights’ of the Golden Circle. The head of this chapter/castle in 1860s Baltimore was also the Grand Master of the Maryland Freemasons. Check out Knights’ Gold on Amazon.
