It Makes You Wonder

Postby Haggis@wk » Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:21 am

IN ITALY, A PREHISTORIC HUG.

Archaeologists in Italy have unearthed two skeletons thought to be 5,000 to 6,000 years old, locked in an embrace.

The pair from the Neolithic period were discovered outside Mantua, about 40km (25 miles) south of Verona.

The pair, almost certainly a man and a woman, are thought to have died young as their teeth were mostly intact, said chief archaeologist Elena Menotti.


The picture is certainly striking.

I don't recall any mention of violence in the report. What was it that killed them? A snowstorm? Famine? Endless speculation, unprofitable but fascinating anyway.

I just snorted coffee all over the monitor!!!! At my parent's 50th anniversary party my father said that if he's strangled my mother when he first wanted to he'd been out of prison by then!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
