Archaeologists show extraordinary weapon find

14 February 2020, North Rhine-Westphalia, M'nster: Eugen M'sch (r), restorer of the LWL-Archaeology for Westphalia and the 19-year-old Nico Calmund, trainee and finder, hold a 2000 year old dagger of a legionnaire in their hands. Archaeologists of the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL) present an extraordinary weapon find of a legionary. A rare Roman weapon has been discovered in the Roman burial ground at Haltern am See and has been restored in an elaborate process. It's a dagger with a belt of arms. The experts from the LWL restoration workshop explain how 2000 year old metal and glass were made visible again. Photo by: Guido Kirchner/picture-alliance/dpa/AP Images
