Archaeologist Martin Hristov, said in addition to the 16-centimeter- (6-inch-) long dagger, his team discovered more than 500 tiny golden rings that appeared to be pieces of ancient jewelry.

Bozhidar Dimitrov, the head of the National Museum of History, said the finds were perfectly preserved and would soon go on display in the museum.

The artifacts were gradually unearthed in the past few weeks in an ancient Thracian complex near the central village of Dabene, 120 kilometers (75 miles) east of the capital, Sofia, according to the AP.

Other finds include a small golden plaque, silver vessels, bronze and silver ritual knives, and ancient pottery.
