The Lovers of Valdaro, also known as the “Valdaro Lovers,” are a pair of human skeletons dated as approximately 6,000 years old.

The two skeletons – speculations say a male and female no older than 20 years old at death and approximately 1.57 m (5 ft 2 in) in height – appear to have died or were interred facing each other with arms around each other, thus reminiscent of a “lovers’ embrace”.
