    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. 🙂

  3. Oh, and some nice pictures of the Dutch sword are here:

    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.

    Nick and All,
    After watching ” Oak Island “, I became very interested in the McGinnis Code (La Formule) . Here is my attempt at the coded message . ” STOP NOT – HIDE NOT – DIG (A HOLE) FORTY FOOT (INCH BY INCH) WITH AN ANGLE FORTY-? DEGREE – THE SHAFT (DOWNSTROKE/UPGRADE) FIFTY-…NGT ?… – TWELVE FOOT IN YOU ENTER THE CHAMBER OF GOLDEN ARK SHINING (GLEAMING) – FIVE PE…? – ACHIEVEMENT THE CHAMBER – VAZEUR . I FOUND A JACOB HENDRICCKSZ VAZEUR WHO WAS A SHIP’S BOY FOR THE DUTCH EAST INDIA COMPANY STARTING IN 1721 ON THE SHIP STADWIJK . I have been interested in Oak Island for years and years . The mystery is truly addictive .
