Locked In An Eternal Embrace
Archaeologists in Valdara, Italy, revealed the discovery of a couple locked in a tender embrace, one that has endured for more than 5,000 years.The find was unearthed by experts digging at a neolithic site at a less than romantic industrial estate. Scientists are to examine the skeletons to try to establish how old they were when they died and how long they have been buried.Archeologist Elena Menotti says:
We have never found a man and a woman embraced before and this is a unique find. We have found plenty of women embracing children but never a couple. Much less a couple hugging - and they really are hugging. It's possible that the man died first and then the woman was killed in sacrifice to accompany his soul.
