Archaeologists in England have made a discovery that puts modern love stories to shame: A pair of 700-year-old skeletons holding hands.
University of Leicester archaeologists unearthed the bony pair in the lost chapel of St. Morrell in Leicestershire, according to the university. The site served as a point of pilgrimage in Hallaton during the 14th century and has been the center of a four-year excavation project.
"The main question we find ourselves asking is why were they buried up there? There is a perfectly good church in Hallaton," she said in a statement. "This leads us to wonder if the chapel could have served as some sort of special place of burial at the time."
The man and woman could have been pilgrims, or perhaps the two people weren't allowed to be buried in the main church because they were foreigners, criminals or sick, according to the university.
