In this episode of History Gems, Nicola is joined by historian and author Elizabeth Norton to explore the story of Queen Arnegunde and the mystery of her mummified lung. The remains of Arnegunde were found in 1959 by the archaeologist Michel Fleury. Along with the skeleton and preserved lung were a strand of hair, jewelry, and several fragments of textiles and leather. A gold signet ring, with the inscription "Arnegundis" showed that the remains belonged to the Merovingian queen.
