5,000 Years to Hold You

The Daily Mail has an interesting article on an archaeological discovery: skeletons of a male and female in an embrace. Since the discovery is near Mantua, one of the locations in Romeo and Juliet, they’re really playing up how romantic and touching the find is. But read a little further and it says:

“One theory being examined is that the man was killed and the woman then sacrificed…”

Ah, romance.
