That's a tiny sword, but I guess people weren't very big back then. (A Norwegian artist once extrapolated from Norwegian military records on average recruit height that the vikings were about 14cm. tall.)
you sure about 14? are we giants among ancient men? :D
It's the number I remember. I haven't checked the math :)
btw I read somewhere that the average height for ancient Egyptians was around 150cm
: 14 or 140? I cannot imagine a real man, even an ancient one, that is 14 cm tall at all.

Maybe misprint, 1.4 m tall?
'Tis just a linear extrapolation-based joke :)
