Noble Friends,

Yesterday's History Blog reported on the discovery of an unusual gold ring
found at Wawel Castle in Kraków, Poland.

The ring displays two abstract human faces, a unique motif never before
seen on rings from this area. The bling was found during an excavation in a
layer beneath the 14th century Danish Tower, and is tentatively dated to
the 11th or 12th century.

Wawel Castle was a royal residence and seat of the Polish government until
1609. Today the castle is Poland's most important art museum.

The ring can be viewed at https://www.thehistoryblog.com/archives/69434 .
