Medieval Baby Alarm Found by Archeologists in the Crimea

Artifacts of the 6th century AC have been unearthed during archelogical excavations in the ancient town of Kyz-Aul in the east of the Crimea.

      Scientists have found a copper hand bell on a bracelet. The find was kept in a child's grave next its owner's remains. According to archeologist Pavel Getsko, such an accessory was fixed onto a baby's hand to follow its location. Thus the hand bell can be characterized as a medieval "baby alarm".

      Archeologists also managed to find a professional dicer's set in another child's burial. This grave was named "dicer's son". Beads of Egyptian faience and two axe-shaped ornament pendants were found in the grave of "woodcutter's son".
