A team of Bulgarian archaeologists stumbled upon a golden adornment in the grave of a woman, who lived in the Middle Ages, on Wednesday, Darik News reported.

The team of Bonnie Petrunova from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences were carrying out excavations in the suburbs of the Kaliakra stronghold when they unearthed the precious find.

The unearthed grave belongs to a young woman, who was buried with a adornment of the finest workmanship on her head. The adornment is made of golden and silver pieces stitched to a fine cloth interwoven with gold.

The archaeologists also found an earring made of winded bronze wire and a bronze ring.

The finding proved the scientists' theory that the Kaliakra stronghold was a flourishing city in the Middle Ages, especially between the 12th and the 15th century.
