Today's Gothic archaeological find comes from Bulgaria, and seems to be an old-fashioned poison ring.
[dig leader Bonnie Petrunova, deputy director of Bulgaria's National Archaeology Museum] believes the ring would have been worn on the pinkie finger of a man's right hand.
The hole would have allowed its wearer to sneakily pour poison into a glass with the flick of his finger...
If so, well,
"This explains many of the unexplained deaths among nobles and aristocrats close to Dobrotitsa," local officials in Kavarna said.
Indeed it might.
