Seller: edanddori (443) 100%, Location: Tarpon Springs, Florida, Ships to: US, Item: 283266143620 THIS VERY SCARCE HAND FORGED IRON MILITARY FORK WAS EXCAVATED FROM A CRUSADER FIELD OF BATTLE NEAR ACRE, ISRAEL ALMOST FIFTY YEARS AGO. IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST INTIMIDATING WEAPONS MOUNTED ON THE END OF A LONG POLE WHEN IT CAME TIME TO STOP SARACEN CAVALRY. THE TWO VERY STRONG PRONGS PLAYED HAVOC WITH ADVANCING FORCES - RIPPING AWAY ENEMY WEAPONS AND DISMOUNTING RIDERS. RIDING AGAINST A LINE OF MILITARY FORKS WAS LIKE RIDING INTO HELL! ACRE WAS TAKEN BY THE CRUSADERS AT THE END OF THE 11TH CENTURY TO BE THEIR MAIN PORT IN THE HOLY LAND. AFTER THE CAPTURE OF JERUSALEM BY THE MUSLIM ARMIES IN THE 13TH CENTURY, IT BECAME THE PRIMARY STRONGHOLD OF THE TEMPLARS, AN ELITE ORDER OF CRUSADER KNIGHTS. ACRE WAS EVENTUALLY THE LAST CHRISTIAN FORTRESS IN THAT REGION UNTIL ITS FALL IN 1291. RECENTLY, A TEAM FROM ISRAEL'S HAIFA UNIVERSITY DISCOVERED A LONG LOST CRUSADER SHIP SUNK IN THE NEARBY BAY WITH A HORDE OF GOLD COINS LYING NEXT TO IT ON THE SEABED. THE COINS ARE DATED TO THE FALL OF ACRE! THIS AMAZING WITNESS TO EVENTS SO LONG AGO IS IN WONDERFUL CONDITION AND HAS BEEN IN THE PERSONAL COLLECTION OF A HISTORIAN OF THE ANCIENT WORLD SINCE ORIGINALLY UNEARTHED. IT'S VERY HEAVY AND MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 11 INCHES LENGTH X 2.5 INCHES WIDTH. AN ARCHAEOLOGIST'S CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY WILL ARRIVE WITH YOUR PURCHASE. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE GIFT FOR ANOTHER OR YOURSELF. DON'T SNOOZE & LOSE THIS VERY SCARCE CRUSADER ARTIFACT! * * * WE PAY FOR SECURE SHIPPING TO YOUR DOOR * * * Condition: EXCELLENT CONDITION!, Material: Iron, Provenance: ANCIENT HISTORIAN'S PRIVATE COLLECTION
