If this sword has been previously in the Lincoln museum, it has been described by Ewart Oakshot in his "Records of the Medieval Sword". (Page 229) According to him this sword dates from 1100-50 and he refers to the long inscription as "closely matching an equally long inscription on one of Dr Jorma Leppaaho's Viking grave finds.” As there is no translation in his book, it could mean the inscription may be old Danish or Norse. Eventually an expert in old Scandinavian languages can help in the deciphering.
