An alert member of the Facebook group Fraudulent Archaeology Wall of Shame just shared a link to a Coast to Coast AM story about Pulitzer's sword claim. The story repeats much of what is in the Boston Standard article (at least the last time I checked), but uses an image of different sword.
Great job, fringe media!
The sword shown looks nothing like the alleged Nova Scotia sword, but surely was chosen because it actually looks like a Roman sword. It will be fun to watch and see if that photo now begins to represent the Nova Scotia sword as the story gets echoed around the internet.
