This artical reports on a 5-6 thousand year old fossile of a couple hugging while they perished. So sweet. Soul Mates I presume.



Archaeologists in Italy have discovered a couple buried 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, hugging each other.

Was I single I may have scoffed a bit but for heavens sake, I blushed when I saw this. In a strange way this mortified display of affection just may be the thing I can use for my lady.

Wowee that's old.

That's like, near the time Sumeria was starting to spring up!
Were there any kingdoms in Italy at that time? Or were Mediteranean Europeans still nomads at that time...?

After seeing the picture I hope that the archeologists don't separate them now, after all this time. I feel like we don't have the right, somehow.

I totally agree!!





This is the sort of thinking that separates humans from the rest of the animal kingdom, and gives humanity a chance even in the face of modern adversity.



All the best,

The real question is what happened in Italy to have them die in that position. It is a sweet picture though.

Perhaps they had both been sick...or one was dying and the mate could not bear to let the other go.

Either way, quite an amazing find.

Wow!
What a great find. The oldest peoples that I know of in Italy would be the Etruscans, although I'm not sure of the years that they were there. I believe they were gone at an easly date.

As far as I know the Etruscans tended to have some pretty elaborate tombs. I wouldn't mind knowing more about the situation in which they were found.

If you look at the full view pictures it almost looks as if they are forming a heart shape.

Maybe they froze. I surprised they didn't suggest how they might have died.

Wow!

I'd make it a V-day card for my lady... but she may find it a little weird though. I think it's beautiful.

Great Find

I feel that it will be sinful to separate them after thousand of years.

Is so sweet. . .


I have the feeling that the young couple had a forbidden relationship and instead of been separated they chose to died together.

I am such a romantic.

Marge that is so great. I would be lying if I didn't speculate the same. This type of bond is something to be envied by all.

Also, if they remove them I hope the discarnates haunt them.

*Even after death, their bodies still remain one, a token of their once infinite love*



Ps: Couldn't be 2 people fighting each other?

Maybe they were something like romeo and juliet, they poisoned each other or something like that

if they did it was overkill

Well If they were killed by somebody else . . . more reason to believe that they were on some kind of forbidden relationship that brought shame to their tribe or family.
