A relic of ancient battles has been discovered at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea – a 900-year-old crusader sword.

An Israeli diver discovered the iron weapon on the sea bed off the Carmel Coast in Israel.

It has a blade over three feet long and was encrusted with marine organisms.

Experts say the rare find has been preserved in perfect condition and they believe it belonged to a crusader knight.

The sword was recovered with other artifacts including an ancient stone anchor, metal anchors and pottery fragments.
