Tue Feb 6, 1:28 PM ET
Archaeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.
"It's an extraordinary case," said Elena Menotti, who led the team on their dig near the northern city of Mantova.
"There has not been a double burial found in the Neolithic period, much less two people hugging -- and they really are hugging."
Menotti said she believed the two, almost certainly a man and a woman although that needs to be confirmed, died young because their teeth were mostly intact and not worn down.

"I know that we hate eachother and that we have nothing whatsoever in common. However, can you imagine the reaction when when they dig us up in 6000 years time!"

Hmmm, perhaps the Bard got it wrong.
The grave’s a fine and private place,
But none, I think, do there embrace.

Well its just outside Romeo and Juliet's gaff Drapes.
The world's longest game of hide & seek began when a sabre-toothed tiger nobbled the seeker.

"You must have a head full of sand to touch me after using superglue...idiot, someone will find us in the future and think I love you, when all I want to do is kill you."

Sorry no caption.
I find that photo very touching. They obviously loved each other dearly and wanted to be together for eternity, and no doubt now someone has dug them up and separated them.
