Today the History Blog feature discusses two 15th century axe heads found
at the site of the 1410 Battle of Grunwald. This is said to have been one
of the largest middle ages European battles, and marked the beginning of
the end for the Teutonic Knights.
The two axe heads, in remarkable condition, were found by a metal
detectorist working under the direction of archaeologists excavating the
battlefield: http://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/59460 .

by the way, though now a charitable organization.
