Viking and Norman Swords

We usually call Viking and Norman swords (which developed from Migration or Merivigian era swords), which were used in Europe during the 8-13th centuries (we usally mark the Viking age from 793 to 1066 and the Norman age from 1066 to 1204). The Norman swords were the first classic knightly arming swords round the 11th century for example the ones which we can see on Bayeux Tapestry in the hands of the William's cavalry.
