A rich funeral from the 14th century, of an unknown until now Bulgarian aristocrat by the name of Georgi Paleolog, was unearthed on the territory of the archeological reserve at Cape Kaliakra. The discovery was made during regular excavations conducted on the site by the team of the Director of the National Museum of History – Associate Professor Bonny Petrunova. The most impressive object among the funeral gifts is a ring of massive gold, which discloses the name and the high position of its owner – relative to the Paleologs and probably ruler of the Despotate of Dobrudzha (or the Principality of Karvuna), whose capital Kaliakra was in the second half of the 14th century.  Photo: BGNES
