Archaeologists in Bulgaria have uncovered a ring once used as a way to secretly poison people"s drinks. Dating back to the 14th century, the well worn ring was discovered at Cape Kaliakra, the site of a medievalfortress that is currently being excavated.

The ring was designed to be worn on the little finger of the right hand, most likely by a male nobleman. The wearer would likely have filled it with deadly poison and then surreptitiously emptied it in to the target"s drink or food while either filling a glass or stretching across the table.The find is particularly interesting because it shows that politically-motivated murders were potentially commonplace in medieval Bulgaria."I have no doubts that the hole is there on purpose and thering was worn on the right hand, because the hole was made in such a way so as to be covered by a finger, so that the poison can be dropped at a momentís notice," said Dr. Bonnie Petrunova who led the excavation. "This explains many of the unexplained deaths of cape among nobles and aristocrats close to Dobrotitca."

Ursula, which could be the age Lisa Gherardini was when she died," said Silvano Vinceti, head of Italy"s national committee for cultural heritage. "The carbon-14 test will tell us which of the three dates back to the 1500s. Only then will we know which skeleton to do the final DNA test on." "Researchers say they"re opening up a Florentine family tomb for the first time in centuriesas part of their long-running effort to identify the bones of a woman who is thought to be the model for Leonardo da Vinci"s Mona Lisa portrait."
